In electromagnetism, electric flux is the flux of the electric field. It is proportional to the number of electric field lines going through a virtual surface. Electric flux lines always extend from a positively charged body to a negatively charged body, always extend or terminate perpendicular to the charged surfaces, and never intersect.
The following schematic shows the Electric Flux Distribution. In figure (a), the flux lines are not interlocked but tend to act as a buffer, preventing attraction and causing repulsion. In figure (b), the flux lines extending from the positive charge are terminated at the negative charge.
