4. Line Integrals in the Plane 4A. Plane Vector Fields 4A-1 a) All vectors in the field are identical; continuously differentiable everywhere. b) The vector at P has its tail at P and head at the origin; field is cont. diff. everywhere. c) All vectors have unit length and point radially outwards; cont. diff. except at (0,O). d) Vector at P has unit length, and the clockwise direction perpendicular to OP. 4B. Line Integrals in the Plane a) On Cl: y = 0, dy = 0; therefore (x2 - y) dx + 2% dy = x2 dx = l = - 2 3 -1 3' b) C: use the parametrization x = cos t, y = sin t; then dx = - sin t dt, dy = cost dt c) C=Cl+C2+C3; C1:x=dx=O; C2: y=1-x; C3:y=dy=0 1 L ydx-xdy = L1o+1 LO (1-x)~x-x(-dx)+ = Jdldx = 1. d) C:x=2cost, y=sint; dx=-2sintdt Lydx = JdZT-2~i~~tdt = -2~ e) C: x=t2, y=t3; dx=2tdt, dy=3t2dt 2 2 2 L 6y dx + x dy = 1 6t3(2t dt) + t2(3t2 dt) = 1 (15t4) dt = 3t5] = 3 . 31. 1 4B-2 a) The field F points radially outward, the unit tangent t to the circle is always perpendicular to the radius; therefore F . t = 0 and Jc F . dr = F . t ds = 0 b) The field F is always tangent to the circle of radius a, in the clockwise direction, and of magnitude a. Therefore F = -at, so that F . = F . t ds = - ads = -2aa2.

2 E. 18.02 EXERCISES i+j 4B-3 a) maximum if C is in the direction of the field: C = - JZ b) minimum if C is in the opposite direction to the field: C = -- . . 4 i-j c) zero if C is perpendicular to the field: C = f - JZ d) max = 4, min = -4 by (a) and (b), fir the max or min F and C have respectively the same or opposite constant direction, so Jc F . dr = f IF1 . ICI = fa. 4C. Gradient Fields and Exact Differentials 4C-1 a) F = Vf = 3x2y i + (x3 + 3y2) j b) (i) Using y as parameter, C1 is: x = Y2, y = y; thus dx = 2y dy, and b) (ii) Using y as parameter, C2 is: x = 1, y = y; thus dx = 0, and b) (iii) By the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus for line integrals, Vf . dl- = f (B) - f (A). P 4C-2 a) F = Vf = (xyexY + exY) i + (x2exy)j . b) (i) Using x as parameter, C is: x = x, y = l/x, so dy = -dx/x2, and so 0 lo F . = (e + e) dx + (x2e) (-dx/x2) = (2ex - ex)] = -e. b) (ii) Using the F.T.C. for line integrals, F . = f (1,l) - f (0, co) = 0 - e = -e. Ic 4C-3 a) F = = (cosxcosy)i - (sinxsiny)j. b) Since / F . dr is path-independent, for any C connecting A : (xo, yo) to B : (xi, yi), J c we have by the F.T.C. for line integrals, b F . = sin XI cos yl - sin xo cos yo This difference on the right-hand side is maximized if sinxl cos yl is maximized, and sin xo cos yo is minimized. Since I sin x cos yl = I sin I 5 1,the difference on the right hand side has a maximum of 2, attained when sinxl cos yl = 1and sinxo cos yo = -1.
