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

Prove the divergence theorem for the vector fieldA== (x,y) and taking the volume V to be the cylinder of radius a with its base centred at the origin, its axisp

parallel to the z-direction and having height h.

I can find the dV side of the equation fine (I think) however am unable to do the dS side to show they are equal to each other

2. Relevant equations

∫∫∫div(A) dV = ∫∫ (A . n) dS

3. The attempt at a solution

∫∫∫div(A) dV = 2*∏*r^2*h

∫∫ (A . n) dS = ???????

Many thanks for all hints and help

James
