Yes of course, using the divergence theorem is so much faster and easier too.
Sorry about the delay. If you have trouble understanding any of this, let me know. It's hard to do a complete explanation because there are a lot of things you probably understand, and I don't want to write a book if I don't have to . Ok, so we have a cube with six sides:
Now we have the normals. I'm going to assume we want outward facing normals, although I'm not entirely sure why that fact isn't given to you.
Then we have:
Not quite sure why latex doesn't format that right, but at least it's readable.
After integrating all of these, I get 760. Is that what you get doing the divergence thm?
Anyone knows how to solve this problem?
Actually my lecturer told me to use a flux integral F.ndS. He talked about normal to the surface and something like that, eg the right most surface of the box has a positive j component. In that case I'd use dx and dz he says. But I still don't really understand this concept. (by the way I can't ask him too much because this is an assignment question).
z=0, 0<x<2, 0<y<4
What 6 integrals do I need to set up? I know these:
What you are doing is integrating over the surfaces of a block. So you can set up 6 different integrals, each with respect to two variables, and add them all together.
