Let F = < z, x, y >. The plane z = 2x + 2y  1 and the paraboloid z = x^2 + y^2 intersect in a closed curve. Stokes's Theorem implies that $\displaystyle \int_{}^{} \int_{D1}^{} ( \nabla ~X~ F ) * N ~dS = \int_{C}^{} F *~dr = \int_{}^{} \int_{D2}^{} ( \nabla ~X~ F ) * N ~DS $ where the line integral is computed over the intersection C of the plane and the paraboloid, and the two surface integrals are computed over the portions of the two surfaces that have boundary C (provided, of course, that the orientations all match). Compute all three integrals Answer: $\displaystyle 3 \pi $ I did the middle line integral successfully, but I would be much appreciated if someone shows me stepbystep of solving $\displaystyle \int_{}^{} \int_{D1}^{} ( \nabla ~X~ F ) * N ~dS $ Last edited by zollen; September 17th, 2017 at 06:11 PM.

Let me know if you don't understand this Mathematica sheet Last edited by skipjack; September 19th, 2017 at 07:32 AM.

Doing the surface integrals in cylindrical coordinates in this sheet. It's a bit cleaner.

Is Wolfram Mathematica home edition free?

I may not have fully understood the syntax. Should you use unit normal vector? Your solutions seem to use (n=Cross(cx,cy)) normal vector.
