## Homework Statement

Calculate the surface flux integral of

**F**= 2xy xhat + (xz - 5xy2)zhat over the surface shown in the figure. Take

**n**=

**k**.

See Figure

## Homework Equations

Flux = Integral (Electric Field * dA)

## The Attempt at a Solution

So from the figure the total area is obviously a

^{2}. The problem says the "surface flux integral" so I assumed they want the flux? For which you need to integrate what? Just integrating what they gave me seems wrong. I'm a bit confused about what was given and what is wanted. And I have no idea what

**n**=

**k**means, unless they mean the normal vector can be considered the z axis, which would make sense. But I'm still at a loss of what exactly I'm integrating.
