I think my method is correct here, but i must of gone wrong somewhere (note i cannot use divergence theorem)
I have a vector field:
Where a is a constant and a sphere:
R is the radius.
Now i have to do a surface integral i.e. not gauss's divergence theorem of a volume integral. Though i did this in order to match my answers and i got
Though i haven't yet found a method to get near to an answer for the surface integral. I know:
Though in this situation dx, dy and dz are all present:
then i sub in n into the flux do the dot products, cancel the 1/|N| terms and get:
Now i introduce spherical coordinates whereby:
Now it looks a little messy but is still all doable - albeit a little long winded but im not allowed to use the divergence theorem.
To cut it short i get
Which is not the obvious and the one i got from divergence theorem:
Any help is much appreciated and thanks for reading
