Hi eveybody,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm having trouble in surface integrals. I know already what the double integrals measure; a multivariable function ( drawing surface) over "a region of domain"..

Now, the surface integrals are for surfaces given by 2-dependent parametrizations over " the surface".

my questions are:

1. What is the difference between the integrations of the surfaces in the 2 cases? in other words, what difference would it make if it was over the domain or the surface? aren't they the same and isn't the domain just the projection of the surface on the xy-plane?

2. Do both measure the "height" of the surface from the xy-plane, but over different veiws of space?

thanks alot in advance
