We're studying Gauss' Law in General Physics,and I have only one hair left
on my head, as I have pulled it all out trying to figure out this
problem.  I understand that if a point charge is located at the origin of
a coordinate system and a Gaussian sphere with a 1m radius is located
elsewhere on the coordinate system the electric flux is zero.  Now, if the
sphere is located at the origin, a point charge is located elsewhere on
the coordinate system, and the sphere's radius is doubled, how does this
affect the electric flux?  Is it still zero?
