I really need it tonight my homework is due tonight. ASAP

1- Suppose F = F(x,y, z) is a gradient field with F = Ñf , S is a level surface of f, and C is a curve on S. What is the value of the line integral_C F·dr?

Zero.

If you follow a level surface, the gradient and hence F is everywhere perpendicular to the curve

F*dr = 0 so the integral must be zero

2- Consider the vector field F(x,y) = (2x2 +y2,2xy). Compute the line integrals_C1 F· dr and Integral_C2 F· dr, where C1 is the curve

r1(t)=(t, t2) for 0t 1 andC2 is the curve r2(t)=(t, t), also forR0 <= t <= 1.

Integral_C1 F·dr = .

Int[(i(2x^{2}+y^{2})+j(2xy))*(idx + jdy)]

= Int[(2x^{2}+y^{2})dx +(2xy)dy)]

Here x=t,

y=t^{2}

dx = dt

dy = 2tdt

Integral_C1 F·dr = Int(t=0 to 1)[(2t^{2}+(t ^{2})^{2})dt +(2tt^{2})2tdt)]

Integral_C1 F·dr = Int(t=0 to 1)[(2t^{2}+ t^{2})dt +(2tt)dt)]

= Int(t=0 to 1)[(5t^{2}dt]

= ((5/3)t^{3})(t=1 - t=0)

= 5/3

Same value

Can you decide from your answers alone whether or not F is a conservative vector field? (Y/N)

OHHHH! Nasty trick question!

The answer is NO

Yes these 2 independent paths give you the same result, but NO this is not sufficient to prove F is a conservative vector field (i.e. it is path independent).

It might be sheer coincidence that these 2 paths gave the same result.

A true proof that the path integral is completely independent for all possible paths (conservative) is to show that the gradient field can be written as the gradient of some scalar field.

Is F a conservative vector field? (Y/N)

Answer YES

Let's find out.

Can I write this field as the gradient of some function?

dF/dx = 2x^{2}+y^{2 }

implies F = (2/3)x^{3 }+ y^{2}x

dF/dy = 2xy

so this works

The fact that the field is a gradient of a function

(in this case F(x,y) = (2/3)x^{3 }+ y^{2}x)

means the answer is YES

(and also proves path independence for any path integral).

3- Let F(x,y) = (-yi+xj)/(x2+y2) = P(x,y)i+Q(x,y)j and let C be the circle r (t) = (cost) i+(sint) j, 0 <= t <= 2p.

Ah hah! so this is the problem I have been having with some of your homework problems

"p" as in 0 <= t <= 2p means pi i.e 3.1415 etc,

didn't know this until now.

A. Note: Your answer should be in terms of x and y; e.g. "3xy - y"

6- Determine whether the given set is open, connected, and simply connected. For example, if it is open, connected, but not simply connected, type "YYN" standing for "Yes, Yes, No." A. {(x,y) |x > 1,y < 2}

YYY

(open, one region, no holes) B.

(x,y) |2x2+y2 < 1

NYY

(closed: a filled ellipse, one region, no holes)

C.

(x,y) |x2-y2 < 1 YYY

(open: (filled area between 2 hyperbolas, x = +- sqrt(1+Y^{2})), single region, no holes)

I have 2 more questions if you don't mind and need them now. My homework is due in 2:30 min form know. Please help. Thank you

1- Let{F} = (18 xyz + 3sin x, 9 x^2z, 9 x^2y). Find a function f so that {F} = f, and f(0,0,0) = 0.

2-

For each of the following vector fields F , decide
whether it is conservative or not. Type in a potential function f
(that is, Ñf = F). If it is not conservative, type N.
A. F(x,y) = (-12x+2y) i+(2x+2y) j

f (x,y) =

B. F(x,y) = -6yi-5xj

f (x,y) =

C. F(x,y, z) = -6xi-5yj+k

f (x,y, z) =

D. F(x,y) = (-6sin y) i+(4y-6x cos y) j

f (x,y) =

E. F(x,y, z) = -6x2i+2y2j+1z2k

f (x,y, z) =

Note: Your answers should be either expressions of x, y and z (e.g. “3xy + 2yz”), or the letter “N”

1- Let{F} = (18 xyz + 3sin x, 9 x^2z, 9 x^2y). Find a function f so that {F} = f, and f(0,0,0) = 0.

So I guess you want the potential this is the gradient of:

df/dx = 18 xyz + 3sin x

f = 9x^{2}yz + -3cos(x) + ?

df/dy = 9 x^{2}z

f = 9x^{2}yz + ?

df/dz = 9x^{2}y

f = 9x^{2}yz + ?

So looks like

f = 9x^{2}yz - 3cos(x) + constant

f(0,0,0) = 0 = 0 - 3 + constant

constant = 3

f = 9x^{2}yz - 3cos(x) + 3

2-

For each of the following vector fields F , decide whether it is conservative or not. Type in a potential function f (that is, Ñf = F). If it is not conservative, type N. A. F(x,y) = (-12x+2y) i+(2x+2y) j

df/dx = -12x + 2y

f = -6x^{2} + 2xy + ?

df/dy = 2x + 2y

f = 2xy + y^{2}

f(x,y) = -6x^{2} + 2xy + y^{2}

B. F(x,y) = -6yi-5xj

a rotational flow, suspect not

df/dx = -6y

f = -6xy + ?

df/dy = -5x

f = -5xy + ?

These are the same term with different constants.

Integrability conditions cannot be satisfied.

There is no potential function.

f (x,y) = N (i.e. NO)

C. F(x,y, z) = -6xi-5yj+k

df/dx = -6x

f = -3x^{2} + ?

df/dy = -5y

f = -(5/2)y^{2} + ?

df/dz = 1

f = z + ?

f (x,y, z) = -3x^{2} + (5/2)y^{2} + z

D. F(x,y) = (-6sin y) i+(4y-6x cos y) j

df/dx = -6sin(y)

f = -6xsin(y) + ?

df/dy = 4y-6x cos y

f = 2y^{2} -6xsin(y) + ?

f (x,y) = 2y^{2} -6xsin(y)

E. F(x,y, z) = -6x2i+2y2j+1z2k

df/dx = -6x^{2}

f = -2x^{3} + ?

df/dy = 2y^{2}

f = (2/3)y^{3} + ?

df/dz = z^{2}

f = (1/3)z^{3} + ?

f (x,y, z) = -2x^{3} + (2/3)y^{3} + (1/3)z^{3}

Note: Your answers should be either expressions of x, y and z (e.g. "3xy + 2yz"), or the letter "N".
