## If the charge distribution has spherical symmetry, then Gauss's law can be used with concentric spheres as Gaussian surfaces.

## If the charge distribution has cylindrical symmetry, then Gauss's law can be used with coaxial cylinders as Gaussian surfaces.

## If the charge distribution has plane symmetry, then Gauss's law can be used with pill boxes as Gaussian surfaces.
