Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Evaluate the surface integral \[\int\limits_{ }^{ }\int\limits_{S}^{}(x^2+y^2+5z^2)dS\] where S is the part of the cone \[z=6\sqrt{x^2+y^2}\] above the plane \[z=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use cylindrical so \(z = 6  r\) or: \(z +r6=0\) and area element \(\large dS = \frac{r dr d \theta}{cos \alpha}\) where \( \large cos \alpha = \frac{\vec n . \hat z}{\vec n  \  \hat z} \) [ie angle between normal to cone and the z axis] normal \( \vec n = \nabla [z+r6] = <1,0,1>\), \(cos \alpha = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\) [meets reality test, cone at \(45^o\) to z axis] the integrand: \(x^2+y^2+5z^2 = r^2 + 5(6r)^2 = r^2 + 5(36  12r + r^2)) \\ = 180  60r + 6r^2\) \(\large = \sqrt{2} \int_{\theta=0}^{2\pi} \int_{r=0}^{6} (180  60r + 6r^2)r \ dr \ d \theta\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you, I could not for the life of me figure this out, particularly regarding solving for the normal vector and using the dot product formula for cosine. That didn't even occur to me. Thanks for all the help!
