# Unit of Electric Flux

When we study the topic of electromagnetism we come across the term electric flux. Β Electric flux is the property of an electric field that may be thought of as the number of electric field lines that intersect a given area. Mathematically, it is represented as

$$\begin{array}{l}\Delta \Phi_e = \overrightarrow{E}.\overrightarrow{\Delta A } \end{array}$$
$$\begin{array}{l}Where~~ vector ~~\vec{E}~~is~~ the~~ electric~~ field~~ intensity~~ and~~ \overrightarrow{\Delta A} ~~is ~~the~~ vector~~ area.\end{array}$$
In the article, let us understand the unit of electric flux in detail.

## What is Electric Flux?

We can define electric flux as theΒ measure of the distribution of the electric field or the rate of flow of the electric field through a given area. This term is basically used to describe the electric field strength at any distance from the charge causing the field. It is expressed using the Greek symbol Phi:Β Ξ¦

### SI Unit of Electric Flux

Talking about the unit, the SI base unit of electric flux is volt-metres (V m) which is also equal to newton-metres squared per coulomb (N m2 C-1). Besides, the base units of electric flux are kgΒ·m3Β·s-3Β·A-1.
