Physics 113 Dr. Renat Letfullin 4 Line Integrals (1) A line integral is a special kind of vector integral in which the projection of some vector quantity is projected on a straight or curved linear path connecting two points, and the product of vector’s projection times infinitesimal path distance is summed. The simplest line integral is just the sum over the path length L : f k k i L s ds = We have previously seen this kind of integration in our discussion of work: f f s i i W F ds F ds = =
Physics 113 Dr. Renat Letfullin 5 Line Integrals (2) Now consider a line integral in the presence of a magnetic field. Divide the path up into line segments of length s . At the k th segment the magnetic field is B k . f k k k i B s B ds ⋅∆ f f f i i i B ds Bds B ds BL = = = If B is always in the same direction as ds and constant over the path, then:
