    Vector Calculus: Surface Integrals

    I really don't even know where to start on this problem.

    I found this formula in the book:

    The surface integral of F over S is:
    Dbl Integral (F dot dS) = Dbl Integral (F dot n dS)

    This is also called the flux of F across S.
    and:

    Dbl Integral (F dot dS) = Dbl Integral(F dot (r sub u X r sub v) dA


    Here is the problem:

    Evaluate: Dbl Integral (A dot n dS) over S in each of the following cases:

    (a) A = yi + 2xj - zk and S is the surface of the plane 2x + y = 6 in the first octant cut off by the plane z = 4.

    (b) A = (x + y^2)i - 2xj + 2yzk and S is the surface of the plane
    2x + y +2z = 6 in the first octant.

    The answers are (a) 108. (b) 81.

    Thanks a lot! It'd be great if someone could help me out on here by morning or I'm going to have to go talk to a TA for help.
