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 · 2( x + y ) = x + y, and f y = 1 2 · 2( x + y ) = x + y gives −→ ∇ f = < x + y, x + y > . For the sketch, we pick a few values −→ ∇ f (1 , 2) = < 3 , 3 >, −→ ∇ f (1 , 3) = < 4 , 4 >, −→ ∇ f (1 , − 2) = < − 1 , − 1 > and draw displacement vectors < 3 , 3 >, < 4 , 4 >, < − 1 , − 1 > starting at (1 , 2) , (1 , 3) , (1 , − 2) respectively. Problem 16.2.5: Evaluate the line integral integraldisplay C xy dx + ( x − y ) dy, where C is the curve consisting of line segments from (0 , 0) to (2 , 0) and from (2 , 0) to (3 , 2) . 2 Solution: By definition, integraldisplay C = integraldisplay C 1 + integraldisplay C 2 . For C 1 we pick the simplest parameterization x = t, y = 0 for 0 ≤ t ≤ 2 . Then substituting the parameterization, xy = 0 , so integraldisplay C...
