Homework Help: Stoke's Theorem formula

  1. Apr 1, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show that both sides of the Stoke's Theorem formula are valid for the function F= using the triangular surface on the y-z plane with corners at the origin, (0,2,0) and (0,0,2).

    2. Relevant equations
    Stokes Theorem equation( not sure how to write it out here)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Took the curl of V, ended up with <-2y,-3z,-x> but when I go to integrate do I set x=0 and then dx=0 as well? So then, with y=2-z , bounds on the integrals are 0-2 and 0-(2-z) so (INT)(INT)(-3z)dydx with the bounds? But when I do this I end up with -4 ... Not sure where I am going wrong and I don't know how to prove the other side of the equation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You left out the function so we can't answer your question!

    The name is "Stokes", not "Stoke". So it should be "Stokes' theorem".
