Proof of Gauss’ Theorem for a Rectangular Prism
Recall Gauss’ theorem, $ \int\int\int_V (\vec{\nabla} \cdot \vec{F}) dV = \int\int_{S} (\vec{F} \cdot \vec{e}_{n}) dS $. This theorem can be written more precisely. The following statement of the Divergence theorem is a copy from reference [1]. Definitions are provided first. Volume $ V$: Define $ V$ as a region comprising three spatial dimensions. The volume has…

Overview of Gauss’ Theorem and Basics of Integration
It turns out that deriving Gauss’ Law is easier said than done. There are several steps according to a StackExchange post [1]. The first of these steps is understanding Gauss’ Theorem. Hmm. Perhaps Gauss used his own theorem to derive his electrostatics law. After a quick online search, it is clear that Gauss’ Theorem is…

Gauss’ Law, Part 1
In Derivation #3, the expression, $ \frac{\partial \beta(t)}{\partial t}$, was written. This is an expression for a derivative of a function $ \beta(t)$. Now that a derivative has been introduced, Maxwell’s equations can be investigated. I start with Gauss’ Law. But first, slightly more information about derivatives is needed. I can consider the pieces of…
