1. (3 points) Express the Cartesian coordinate system unit vector, denoted a
r or r, in terms of both
the position vector ~r and the gradient operator r.

~ = krT , where T is temperature and k is the thermal

the area integral into the appropriate sections. I would have four dierent integrals set up for the
area, where there is a given coordinate which is constant for each integral.

6. (8 points) If F~ = x2 y
