    A long string with a charge A per unit length passes through an imaginary cube of edge a. The maximum flux of the electric field through the cube will be

    A) \[\frac{\lambda a}{{{\varepsilon }_{0}}}\]                          

    B) \[\frac{\sqrt{2}\lambda a}{{{\varepsilon }_{0}}}\] 

    C)   \[\frac{6\lambda {{a}^{2}}}{{{\varepsilon }_{0}}}\]      

    D)   \[\frac{\sqrt{3}\lambda a}{{{\varepsilon }_{0}}}\]   

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    The maximum length of the string which can be fit into the cube is equal to the body diagonal. We know that body diagonal of a cube is \[\sqrt{3}\,a.\] The total charge inside the cube will be \[(\sqrt{3}a)\times \lambda .\] According to Gauss's law, the total flux through the cube \[\Phi =\frac{\text{Total}\,\text{Charge}}{{{\varepsilon }_{0}}}=\frac{\sqrt{3}a\lambda }{{{\varepsilon }_{0}}}\] Hence, the correction option is (d).
