Homework Help: Help with divergence theorem

  1. Feb 18, 2004 #1
    I need help evaluating both sides of the divergence theorem if V=xi+yj+zk and the surface S is the sphere x^2+y^2+z^2=1, and so verify the divergence theorem for this case.

    Is the divergence theorem the triple integral over V (div V) dxdydz= the double integral over S (V dot normal)dS? If so I would I evaluate it for the above problem?
