Consider a function Q, from some set D in R2 to some set in R3. Suppose Q parametrizes a surface S.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Orientation of the edge of the surface must be compatible with orientation of the surface. I read that if the parametrization of the Boundary of the domain D give it anticlockwise direction, then the parametrization of the surface S will always induce the proper orientation on the edge of S. Why is this so?

thanks
