(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The following vector field is given: F = < x + y^3, y, z - y^3 >

Let T be the solid given in cylinder coordinates by: r [0,1], tetha [0, pi], z [0, 2]

Find the flux out of the curved part of the surface of T.

2. The attempt at a solution

The normal vector n is < x, y, 0 >

F*n is therefore 1 + xy^3

Then I need dS = sqrt(1 + z_{x}^{2}+ z_{y}^{2}) dx dy. Is this simply 1 dx dy?
