    Find Surface Integral Flux

    What limit should I use to evalute the integeral?

    Evaluate if and the surface S is given by for . (Take S to have upward orientation.)

    This gives us

    \int \int (2xy\sin(8y)+4xy^2(8x\cos(8y))-2y(x\sin(8y)))dA
    okay, so I integrate

    \int_0^{pi/16} \int_0^{pi/16} (2xy\sin(8y)+4xy^2(8x\cos(8y))-2y(x\sin(8y)))dxdy

    with x = 0 to pi/16 and y = 0 to pi/16

    and keep getting:

    7.37119946071407E-05

    I was wondering if I am using the right limits:

    Please help........ (I am running out of tries!!)

    small error

    your 4xy^2(8xsos(8y) should be 4x^2(8xcos(8y) = 32x^3cos(8y)
