Homework Statement



If vector [itex]A=(2x,-z^2,3xy)[/itex], find the flux of A through a surface defined by [itex] ρ
=2, 0<\phi<\pi/2, 0<z<1[/itex]

Homework Equations



divA?

The Attempt at a Solution


Can I use divergence here?
This is a closed surface correct? Is this is a cylindrical wedge?
Also do I need to convert the vector field to cylindrical form? Or the defined surface to rectangle form?

If I used divergence do I divide my answer by 4 since the wedge is a 1/4 of the cylinder?

Thanks
