My question is:

Compute the flux of the vector field, , through the surface, S.

and S is the part of the surface above the disk oriented downward.

My answer so far is

is this correct?

yes but for one cosmetic change

in you next to last integral you should have replaced dA with drdtheta since dA is rdrdtheta

--in your last integral dA should be dtheta - April 21st 2009, 02:30 PMTheRekz
ok my bad , edited my original post, however my final result that I got is:

, and this is a web assign question and it doesn't accepts it (marks it as wrong) - April 21st 2009, 02:34 PMCalculus26
Aah-- I didn't see it either r varies from 0 to 2 not 4

The radius of the disk is 2 - April 21st 2009, 02:36 PMTheRekz
I tried and it doesn't work as well

In your first integral you have 7x +7y +z --should be 7x+7y+7z
