Abstract: In a compact oriented hypersurface $ {M^n}$ of the sphere $ {S^{n + 1}}$ the integral formula $ {\smallint _{{M^n}}}\nabla {K_r}dV = n{\smallint _{{M^n}}}({K_r}{K_1} - {K_{r + 1}})edV$ is proved where $ {K_r}$ is the rth mean curvature, e is the unit normal of $ {M^n}$ in $ {S^{n + 1}}$. Some applications are considered.
