Show that

Re: surface integral


I am sorry, I would like to help you but you should learn first to exactly formulate your problem.
For example it is completely nonsense that p is a point () and then you write something like where you use in the integrand. You are talking about a "sphere" which can be defined in any dimension, definition where ,. What is D? I believe I know what you want but please help with a correct definition.
A hint in the forefront: Gauß.
