Homework Help: Flux out of cube

  1. Apr 4, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the flux of vector field F = xi + zj out of the cube that has corners in (0,0,0),(1,0,0),(0,1,0),(0,0,1),(1,1,0),(1,0,1),(0,1,1),(1,1,1).

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Is it 1?

    Divergence = del dod F = 1
    Triple integral of divergence= SSS 1 dx dy dz each from 0 to 1
    = 1

    I don't have a solution for this one, so I'd like to know if I got it right. :smile:
