Learn what the Divergence Theorem is, what it means, and how to use it.

- Transcript of Lesson - Written transcript from this lesson.
- Problem Set - A problem set with some problems from this lecture.

- What is the Divergence Theorem in three dimensions?
- How do you find the normal vector in three dimensions?
- Why does n hat dS = +- <-fx, -fy, 1> dx dy?
- How do you find the flux F = zk through a portion of paraboloid z = x^2 + y^2 above the unit disk?
- What is the Gauss-Green Theorem?

More about flux and surface integrals are covered in this lecture. Example problems are computed and explained in the video. The Divergence Theorem (or the Gauss-Green Theorem) is finally introduced and explained quickly in the final six minutes of this lecture. An example is shown and the geometric idea is explained.
