Homework Help: Vector Calculus II: Flux Integrals

  1. May 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the flux of the vector field through the surface: F = i + 2j through a square of side length 2, lying in the plane x + y + z = 1, oriented away from the origin.

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    So, I need to take the integral over the surface of F dotted with dA. I've solved for dA already. I'm trying to think of the limits of integrations, but I can't figure them out. Often these relatively simply things seem to slip my mind.
