    Problem:

    Prove that for any $x \in R^n$ and any $0<p<\infty$

    $\int_{S^{n-1}} \rvert \xi \cdot x \rvert^p d\sigma(\xi) = \rvert x \rvert^p \int_{S^{n-1}} \rvert \xi_1 \rvert^p d\sigma(\xi)$,

    where $\xi \cdot x = \xi_1 x_1 + ... + \xi_n x_n$ is the inner product in $R^n$.

    Some thinking...

    I believe I'd like to define a function $f$ on $R^n$ so that I can utilize the formula...

    $\int_{R^n} f(x) dx = \int_0^{\infty} r^{n-1} (\int_{S^{n-1}} f(r \theta ) d \sigma (\theta) ) dr $

    If that's right... what would the function be? Maybe $f: R^n \rightarrow R, x \mapsto x_1 + x_2 + ...$?
