# When s is the open hemisphere x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1, z ≤ 0 , oriented by the inward normal pointing to the origin, then the boundary orientation on ∂s is clockwise. true or false?

The figure below shows a diagram of this problem. First of all we graph the hemisphere. This one has a radius equal to 1. Given that z ≤ 0 a sphere will be valid only in the negative z-axis, that is, we will get a half of a sphere that is the hemisphere shown in the figure. We know that this hemisphere is oriented by the inward normal pointing to the origin, then we have a Differential Surface Vector called N, using the Right-hand rule the boundary orientation is  counterclockwise. Therefore, the answer above False
