Use Divergence Theorem to Compute the Flux Integral Just a work check!

  1. Mar 20, 2010 #1

    Alright so I found div F=3x2+3y2+3z2

    The integral then becomes the triple integral of the divergence of F times the derivative of the volume.

    Changing into spherical coordinates, the integral becomes [tex]3\int_{0}^{2\pi}\int_{0}^{\pi}\int_{0}^{1}p^{4}sin{\phi}dpd{\phi}d{\theta} [/tex] which ends up equaling [tex]2.4{\pi}[/tex].

    Is this correct?
