Okay, so we're giving the, uh the field f we're just equals two x three x y naked Max. Want to see? We're looking for the work Done from 0 to 1. So bye. The fury of the work theory We have, um f comes the are over dt. So the derogative of replacements The displacements operator thes placements times the operator dt Ah, Plug it in. We have 0 to 1. So the first, um, components will be one minus t. And 2nd 1 will be netting three times t squared among the three t plus four and to t minus three in the Vetter for the directive of the our of our will be making 11 That one. And did he? And this is a who's in the product before into better. So plug everything in. We have necking 30 square, minus 20 plus 14 dc And the answer is eight
