Mathematics 317T2 Assignment #6 due Wednesday, March 3, 2010 1. Suppose the force field F ( x , y , z ) is conservative in the domain D . If ) , , ( z y x ϕ is a potential for F , show that the lines of force for F are perpendicular to the equipotential surfaces const. = ϕ 2. Determine whether each of the following vector fields is conservative in 3 R , and find their potentials when conservative. (a) . 2 2 2 k j i F z y x + + = (b) . k j i F xy x y = 3. Show that k j i F y x y = is not a conservative vector field.

In an electrostatic field due to a point charge q located at the origin, a charge Q is moved from the point (2,3,6) to the point (1,2,2). Find the work done for all possible paths not passing through the origin. Is the question, as worded, ambiguous? Give a reason. Recall Coulomb’s Law....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
