Problem 32 Hard Difficulty

(a) Find the work done by the force field $ \textbf{F} (x, y) = x^2 \, \textbf{i} + xy \, \textbf{j} $ on a particle that moves once around the circle $ x^2 + y^2 = 4 $ oriented in the counter-clockwise direction.
(b) Use a computer algebra system to graph the force field and circle on the same screen. Use the graph to explain your answer to part (a).


a) Work done is 0
b) $$
\int_{C} F \cdot d r=0

So I guess in reality a power you have to use a computer or calculator to you and I'LL compute the first part. So once around the circle culture class wise so kind of standard Parametric ation Mexico's to co sign T Boy hose to society and the tea goes wrong. The other two pi So what is F or far off? T? We're simply replaced x by to society And why by two scientists Second power should be fourth scientific all scientists in our prime iss negative to sigh Inti to co sign t no so integral integral from zero to two pints a dot product of these two, it's negative. Eight sci fi coz I scurti plus a sai inti Cose I squirt ti So you find if I didn't make any mistake their teacher this who term looks like they're canceling. Therefore we should get zero Well, let me tell you actually, if I compute anything wrong ex Chris for cause I score thirteen x wise for scientific society The ribbed him is Neck deep Sigh and cose I That's right. Then we takes Ah, we take a shot for that So we're negative a psycho's I square eight cycles I sparkle. It looks like they're indeed can sew, sew, sew This this inter cross here
