Integrate over sphere issue (URGENT)
So I'm suppose to integrate over a sphere w. radius 3.
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.

In spherical coordinates, the radial axis is perpendicular to the sphere so the $\displaystyle \theta$ and $\displaystyle \phi$ components (called "u" and "v" here) are 0.
