Does Stokes's theorem imply that the flux integral of a curl of a vector field over a closed surface is always zero? (because then there is no boundary curve and thus the line integral over the boundary curve is zero)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there an insightful way to see why this is always true? Maybe a connection with physics or so.

Thank you,

mr vodka
