Problem 16.1.26. Find and sketch the
gradient ﬁeld of
f
(
x, y
) =
1
2
(
x
+
y
)
2
.
Solution. The gradient ﬁeld
→
∇
f
=
< f
x
, f
y
>,
so
f
x
=
1

·
2(
x
+
y
) =
x
+
y,
and
f
y
=
1

·
2(
x
+
y
) =
x
+
y
gives

Problem 16.2.5:
Evaluate the line integral
Z
C
xy dx
+ (
x

y
)
dy,
where
C
is the curve consisting of line segments
from (0
