Hi, I'm having trouble with some simple flux integrals.
A surface is given with points (0,0,2), (0,1,2), (1,0,0), and (1,1,0), and the vector field is v= 2i + 3j + 5k, and I am trying to find the flux of the vector field through the surface. I have found the normal to this surface by taking the cross product, and my normal is
I'm having problems setting up my integral. What is my dA? I don't know if it's in terms of dx, dy, or dz. The back of the book says the answer is 9, and the only way I can get this is by using dxdy for my dA, but I'm not sure why this is the case.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
