Would Gausss law remain valid if Coulombs law were replaced by an inverse cube law?[/quite]No.Quote from: ScienceLoversuitable example. Coulombs law and Gausss law are equivalent statements? ? That's true. But Coulomb's law is an inverse square law and because of that they are equivalent because Coulomb's law is an inverse square law. If it wasn't then that would not longer be true. If you were to follow the derivation of Gauss's law you'd see this. Gauss's law is more appropriately called Gauss's theorem because it can be derived.
suitable example. Coulombs law and Gausss law are equivalent statements? ?
Thanks for the great response, can you give an example please for Would Gaussís law remain valid if Coulombís law were replaced by an inverse cube law?like comparison when its valid and why not valid?
