    Maxwell's equations... maybe something like the divergence theorem or one of those convenient integral identities in the front of Griffith's Electrodynamics.

    Maybe you could describe the problem better. If you've given me all the information, try what I said above... maybe you'll have to take a derivative or something, but it should be fairly straightforward.
