The three point (1, 0, 0), (0, 2, 0), and (0, 0, 3) lie in the plane given by x+ y/2+ z/3= 1. That should be obvious- each of the points satisfies that equation. That can be written x= 1-y/2- z/3 so we can write parametric equations, in terms of two parameters, s and t, as x= 1- s/2- t/3, y= s, z= t. One vector lying in that plane is the derivative with respect to s, <-1/2, 1, 0>, another is the derivative with respect to t, <-1/3, 0, 1>. The normal vector is the cross product of those two vectors, <1, 1/2, 1/3>. The "vector differential of surface area" is . The vector <x, x, x>, in these parameters is [tex]<1- s/2- t/3, 1- s/2- t/3, 1- s/2- t/3>[tex] and the integrand is the dot product of those two vectors: t) dsdt" />

The flux is the flow through a surface, here the triangle originally given, with vertices (1, 0, 0), (0, 2, 0), and (0, 0, 3). That has nothing whatever to do with (0, 0, 0) nor with any other faces. January 11th, 2017, 08:43 AM   #4

1)
Equation of the triangular plane is given by
n.p=d
where n is unit normal to plane and d is distance from origin to plane and
n=aXb/|aXb|
where a and b are any two vectors in the plane, such as (0,2,-1) and (0,3,-1), and d=n.p where p is any vector from the origin to a point on the plane, such as (0,0,1).

To do the flow integral you need z as a function of x,y on the surface to get F(x,y,z)=F(x,y,z(x,y)) on the surface: Solve n.p=d for z=z(x,y).

2)
Repeat 1) to get flow across the other surfaces of the triangular box. On the x,y plane, for example, n=k, and z=0.

F(x,y,z) = f$\displaystyle _{x}$(x,y,z)i + f$\displaystyle _{y}$(x,y,z)$\displaystyle j$+ f$\displaystyle _{z}$(x,y,z)$\displaystyle k$ Tags integral, surface, triangle, vector ,
