In Exercises $7-12,$ find the line integrals of $F$ from $(0,0,0)$ to $(1,1,1)$ over each of the following paths in the accompanying figure. a. The straight-line path $C_{1} : \mathbf{r}(t)=t \mathbf{i}+t \mathbf{j}+t \mathbf{k}, \quad 0 \leq t \leq 1$ b. The curved path $C_{2} : \mathbf{r}(t)=t \mathbf{i}+t^{2} \mathbf{j}+t^{4} \mathbf{k}, \quad 0 \leq t \leq 1$ c. The path $C_{3} \cup C_{4}$ consisting of the line segment from $(0,0,0)$ to $(1,1,0)$ followed by the segment from $(1,1,0)$ to $(1,1,1)$
$$\mathbf{F}=3 y \mathbf{i}+2 x \mathbf{j}+4 z \mathbf{k}$$

Experiments show that a steady current $I$ in a long wire produces a magnetic field $\mathbf{B}$ that is tangent to any circle that lies in the plane perpendicular to the wire and whose
center is the axis of the wire (as in the figure at the right). Ampere's Law relates the electric current to its magnetic effects and states that
$$\int_{C} \mathbf{B} \cdot d \mathbf{r}=\mu_{0} I$$
where $I$ is the net current that passes through any surface bounded by a closed curve $C,$ and $\mu_{0}$ is a constant called the permeability of free space. By taking $C$ to be a circle
with radius $r,$ show that the magnitude $B=|\mathbf{B}|$ of the magnetic field at a distance $r$ from the center of the wire is $$B=\frac{\mu_{0} I}{2 \pi r}$$
