Question
The heat flow vector field for conducting objects is F=−k∇T​, where T(x,y,z) is the temperature in the object and k is a constant that depends on the material. Compute the outward flux of F across the given surface S for the given temperature distribution. Assume k=1.

T(x,y,z,)=−7ln( x2 +y2 + z2)
S is the sphere x2+y2+z2=a2
Step 1

Assume k = 1.

Then the vector field becomes, F = −∇T.

Find ∇T as follows. help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseот от от УТ 3 ах ду д -7 -7 -7 2у. x* + y* +z*) ^ (x2? + y? +) 2х, 2z +y?+*) -14z -14х -14 у (x +y*+ z*)(x* +y? + z*) (* +y? +z°) } fullscreen
