It has the surface charge $\displaystyle w = e^r * sinu * sin^2v$ To integrate I want to find: n dS, n being normal vector, dS delta surface aka. du dv. Normal vector = sphere coordinate normalized = $\displaystyle n = (sinu * cosv, sinu*sinv, cosu)$ $\displaystyle n dS = n dudv$ ?? But in my book they get: $\displaystyle ndS = (+- r^2sinu, 0, 0)$ I have no idea how they just deleted 2 out of 3 axis when integrating over a sphere. All help is appreciated, got final exam in less than a week.
