hey everyone, this is my first post at this physicsforums.com dealy. i have a take home exam and i'm havin a rough time with the way the prof worded this question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Consider a sphere of radius R centered atRo(Ro is a vector) and a constant vectorcwhich specifies a point in the sphere, where the origin of these vectors is arbitrarily chosen somewhere in space.

A) find the following integral:

(double integral sign) da/ |c-r|

where dais an infinitesimal outward area vector atron the surface S of the sphere. Express your answer in terms ofRoandc.

.....so that's it....i'm confused about the components of Ro and c and r....and whether or not i even need them to do the equation....if anyone could get me started (or even finished...hehe) that would be really appreciated!!!! THANKS
