I need to find the flux of the vector field F through S (in the pic), when S represent the edges of a cube.

My question is, how do I find N (normal)? Do I need to split the curb and to find the flux through each face?

Another thing, why the fluxes aren't canceling one another?

Lets say I want to calculate the flux which goes through the upper face.

I know the vector field is F, and I know the normal, so I came up with this thing in the pic.

I think I found a better way using Gauss' law, is this right?
