4 .Green’s Theorem In A Plane:



Tutorial Problems:


5 Gauss Divergence Theorem:


          The surface integral of the normal component of a vector function F over a closed surface  S enclosing volume V is equal to the volume integral of the divergence of F taken throughout the


6. Stoke’s Theorem


The surface integral of the normal component of the curl of a vector function F over an open surface S is equal to the line integral of the tangential component of F around the closed curve C bounding S.      

Hence, Stoke’s  theorem is verified.
