Evaluating a Surface Integral - Basic Example
This video shows one example of evaluating a basic surface integral.
Vector Calculus - What is a surface integral? (part 1)
This lecture gently introduces the idea of a "surface integral" and illustrates how to integral functions over surfaces. The idea is a generalization of double integrals in the plane.
The concept of surface integral has a number of important applications such as calculating surface area. In addition, surface integrals find use when calculating the mass of a surface like a cone or bowl.
A number of examples are presented to illustrate the ideas.
Vector Calculus - More on surface integrals (part 2)
Vector Calculus - Surface integrals + vector fields
This lecture discusses "surface integrals" of vector fields. In particular, we discover how to integrate vector fields over surfaces in 3D space and "flux" integrals. A few examples are presented to illustrate the ideas.
Such concepts have important applications in fluid flow and electromagnetics.
