Hey guys,

I'm having trouble finding the n in stokes theorem.

For example,

F(x,y,z)= z^{2}i+2xj-y^{3}; C is the circle x^{2}+ y^{2}=1 in the xy-plane with counterclockwise orientation looking down the positive z-axis.

∫∫CurlF*n

I know the curl is -3y^{2}i+2zj+2k

The book found that n=k and just multiplied it out. I don't understand where they got that value.

Thanks
