Could someone help me with the following question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

====

Q.A= (y,-x,0). Find IntegralA.dlfor a closed loop on the surface of the cylinder (x-3)^2 + y^2 = 2.

====

I'm managed to ascertain the following:

*I can use Stokes' theorem to solve the problem

*The curl (A) = (0,0,-2)

*Radius = sqrt2

*The normal to the cylinder, n, is equal to k (as cylinder lies in xy plane).

However, I have no clue how to do the actual surface integral! I'm fairly sure I need to transform into cylindrical coordinates, but I honestly have no idea how to use the actual 'cylinder' in the problem (is it to provide the limits?!) not how I form the integral? Please could someone offer some help. Thanks
