Homework Help: Honors Calc Prob: Vectors

  1. Feb 18, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Let C be the circle of radius 2 centered on the origin and contained in the plane 2x - 3y + 5 = 0. Compute the flux through C of the constant vector field v = {6, - 1, 12}

    I have no idea about this problem. This is one the review problem which was given to us in the class for next week's exam.

    Well, what is the definition (it involves an area integral) of flux of a vector field through a surface?

    What is the surface in this case? What is the unit normal to that surface?
