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 step-by-step 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

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

What happens is that the factor that normalizes the unit vector is exactly the same factor that accounts for the local metric of the surface, so the two cancel each other out.
