Math 23 B. Dodson Week 5b Homework: 16.1, 16.2 vector fields and line integrals 16.3 Fundamental Theorem for line integrals 16.4 Green’s Formula 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 · 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 1 xy dx = 0; and, y = 0 gives dy = 0 · dt, so integraldisplay C 1 ( x y ) dy = 0 .

### What students are saying

• 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
