Flux of the Poynting vector

    • Moved from technical forums, missing template
    I have some problems in calculating the flux of Poynting's vector through a surface.
    I have that:

    S=c/4π⋅H^2⋅n (S: Poynting's vector, n: versor of the direction of the propagation of the em wave)

    H=1/cR A'
    but: A=(1/cR) d'; A'=(1/cR) d'' ==> H= (1/cR)^2 d''
    ==> S= (c/4π)⋅ 1/(cR)^4 d''^2 n

    I have to find that the result of the flux of S (I don't know through wich surface) is:

    dE/dt=∫S⋅dΩ=...=-2/(3⋅c^3) |d''|^2 (d is magnetic dipole momentum)

    How is it calculated?
    Thanks to everyone who will try to help me.
