(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

compute the work done by the force field F(xyz)=[(yze^(xyz)+y^2+1)i+(xze^(xyz)+2xy)j+(xye^(xyz))k], in moving the object along the path C from beginning to end. here C is the path paramterized by r(t)=<t, (t^2)-1, t+2>, 0<_t<_1.

3. The attempt at a solution

Would i be correct if i said that i should use the functions of x(t), y(t), z(t), and substituting them into the original equation? then take the derivative of r(t) and do the dot product of them. then use the formula: ∫F*dr?
