f(x, y ,z) over dS, where

x = x(u, v)

y = y(u, v)

z = z(u, v)

dS is equal to ||

**r**

_{u}X

**r**

_{v}|| dA

Why don't we use the jacobian here when we change coordinate systems?

Would the Jacobian be used if:

x = x(u, v, w)

y = y(u, v, w)

z = z(u, v, w)

?

x = x(u, v, w)

y = y(u, v, w)

z = z(u, v, w)

?
