1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Evaluate: [tex]\int[/tex][tex]\int[/tex]G(r)dA Where G = z S: x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} = 9 [tex]z \geq 0[/tex] 2. Relevant equations Parameterization x = r sinu cosv y = r sinu sin v z = r cos u 3. The attempt at a solution r(u,v) = (r sinu cosv)i + (r sinu sinv)j + (r cosu)k r_{u} = (r cosu cosv)i + (-r cos u sinv)j + (-r sinu)k r_{v} = (-r sinu sinv)i + (r sinu cosv)j + 0k dA = |r_{u} x r_{v}| I am not sure if I am approaching this correctly or if I am way off base. My next step was to complete the dot product of z with dA but this does not seem right and I can't find any good examples in my text. Thank you in advance.
You are doing it ok. There's a simpler way to get dA. You know that dV in spherical coordinates is just r^2*sin(u)*du*dv*dr, right? dA over a sphere is just that without the dr. But you should get the same thing by finding the norm of your cross product.
r= 3 in this problem and you don't use "the dot product of z with dA" because neither is a vector! Just multiply and integrate.
