Let S be the cone z = J x2 + y2, 0 "S z ~ 2, oriented by downward normal, and let
F = (x +cosy- sinz) i+ (y + sinx + cosz)j + ex'+y' k.

Use Gauss's theorem to calculate JJ8 F · dS.

Evaluate

J JD (x2 + y2)ex'-y' dA,

where D is the region in the first quadrant bounded by the hyperbolas x 2 - y2 = 1, x 2 - y2 = 9,

xy = 1, xy = 4.

Find the dimensions of the laxgest rectangular box (whose faces are parallel to the coordinate

planes) that can be inscribed in the tetrahedron having three faces in the coordinate planes and

fourth face in the plane with equation x +y +z = 1 as shown in the figure.

A thin film is made in the shape of the helicoid

X(s,t) = (scost,ssint,t), 0:0: s :0:1, 0:0: t :0: 47r.

P.2 of 4
Suppose that the mass density (per unit area) at each point (x, y, z) of the film varies as

o(x,y,z) = vx' +Y 2

Find the total mass of the film.
