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

Given a vector field [itex]A=(2x,-z^2,3xy)[/itex], find the flux ofAthrough a surface defined by [itex] ρ

=2, 0<\phi<\pi/2, 0<z<1[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

∇[itex]\bullet[/itex]A?

3. The attempt at a solution

Can I use divergence method here?

This is a closed surface correct? A cylindrical wedge?

Also do I need to convert the vector field to cylindrical form? Or the defined surface to rectangle form?

If I used divergence do I divide my answer by 4 since the wedge is a 1/4 of the cylinder?

Thanks
