Electric flux

Hello buddies!

Фe = CU

Фe - electric flux;
C - capacitance;
U - potential difference (electromotive force).

Is this formula valid (correct)? If the answer is YES, under what specific circumstances it is valid?

I will be thankful for every comment and explaining...

Wish you a nice day!!

I don't recognize that expression. It would take me time that I don't have now to determine its validity. I'll look at it tomorrow. What I recommend that you do in the meantime is determine if the units are right, i.e. are the units on the left side the same as on the right side. If not then the expression is wrong.

One thing that I can tell you right now is that U is not potential difference, it's potential. Also potential difference is not the same thing as electromotive force (EMF). I suggest that you look each term up in Wikipedia and study them.
