For a mass kept at the centre of a cube of side ‘a’, the flux of gravitational field passing through its sides is GM

Statement 2:

If the direction of a field due to a point source is radial and its dependence on the distance ‘r’ from the source is given as , its flux through a closed surface depends only on the strength of the source enclosed by the surface and not on the size or shape of the surface

Statement 1 is True, Statement 2 is True; Statement 2 is correct explanation for Statement 1

b)

Statement 1 is True, Statement 2 is True; Statement 2 is not correct explanation for Statement 1
