    Mass-flow rate

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Consider a flow for which the velocity vector is:
    u=(U/L)(xi-2yj+zk)
    Compute the mass-flow rate across a plane of area A that is perpendicular to the x axis and lies at x=3L. The fluid density is d.

    I know that the mass-flow rate, M, is calculated by:
    M=Double integration [d(u*n)]dA

    I am having trouble setting up the integral though. I think that dA becomes dy dz but I'm not for sure what the limits will be for those.
