Evaluate the surface integral ∫∫ x^2 * z dσ
S
where the S is the part of the cylinder x^2 + z^2 =1 that is above the xy plane and between the planes y=0 and y=2. Can anyone help me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Most of the questions i have to work with as examples use the double integral over σ and the dσ is dS... thats the first thing i am confused with... the second thing is that i started and thought to write the equation of the cylinder in terms of x so i could let that equal to g(y,z) but since there is no y in either function I dont know how to integrate over dydz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only problem with what you've written here is that you havent taken the g(x,y) and the partial derivatives of g with respect to x and y. the surface integral is supposed to look something like\[∫∫ f(x,y,z)*dS = ∫∫ f(x,y,z)*\sqrt{1+(∂x/∂y)^2+(∂x/∂z)^2}dA\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here is how I started..... let x=\[\sqrt{1z^2}\y and ∂x/∂y = 0 and ∂x/∂z=\[∂x/∂z = z/\sqrt{1z^2}\] so that my surface integral becomes \[∫∫ x^2*z*dS\] = \[[∫∫(1z^2)*z*(1/\sqrt{1z^2) }] = \] \[∫∫(1z^2)^0.5\] I'm stuck here though because I would think the dA becomes dz*dy and I would integrate first with respect to z from 0 to 1 but then how to i integrate with respect to y if i dont have anything to find the range from

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that first line that got cut off should say ∂x/∂z = \[(z)/(1z^2)^0.5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Best way is \[z=\sqrt{1x^2}\,,\frac{\partial z}{\partial x}=\frac{x}{\sqrt{1x^2}}\,,\,\frac{\partial z}{\partial y}=0\] \[\iint\limits_Sx^2zd\sigma=\iint x^2\sqrt{1x^2}\sqrt{1+\frac{x^2}{1x^2}}dxdy= =\iint x^2dxdy=\] \[=\int\limits_{1}^{1}x^2dx\cdot\int\limits_{0}^{2}dy=\frac{2}{3}\cdot 2=\frac{4}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i was on the right track but i should have done the x^2 + z^2 = 1 in terms of z instead?! is there a reason? also, for the range of y is just from the question since it said between the planes y=0 and y=2 right.? and for x is for when you set \[z=\sqrt{(1x^2)} \] equal to 0 right and solve for x= +1 and 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find projection of surface S on xy plane, you will get rectangle (1,0,0) , (1,0,0) , (1,2,0) , (1,2,0).
