  1. Apr 8, 2009 #1

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Okay I already got the result for the line integral along the circle, but I am confused how to get the line integral in the x-axis? To get the final result I just need to add both, right?

    Could try x=t for [tex]0\le t\le 6[/tex] and [tex]y\equiv 0[/tex]. Then add both, as you said.

    OR, try another method. Is the integral path independent?

    yes I guess..it's path independent
