Vector field flux

  1. Mar 18, 2013 #1
    Given is vector field
    [tex]\overrightarrow{C}(\overrightarrow{r})=r[/tex]
    calculate flux
    [tex]\Phi =\int_{S} \overrightarrow{C}\cdot d\overrightarrow{A}[/tex]
    through sphere S with beginning in [0,0,0] and r=1

    hih michael892! :smile:

    (just got up :zzz:)
    you won't need calculus, it's not complicated enough for that

    what is r.dn on a sphere of radius r ? :wink:

    (where n is the outward normal unit vector)
