I found two different solved examples of Stoke's theorem. And I'm kinda confused with the orientation. I tried googling it but still not clear. Can somebody explain? 1. Says that we have curve K that is oriented clockwise and we are looking at it from point T (0,0,10). We parameterize it with r and phi. It says that f(r)xf(phi) points upwards and the normal P downwards. So we have  in the front of the integral. How do we know that? 2.We have curve that is oriented clockwise and we are looking at it from T(0,0,0). Here it says that both f(r)xf(phi) and P are pointing upwards. Here we have +. Again how do we know that?

What are f(r) and f(phi)?
