Force - Determining F from U

  1. Feb 12, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If U = 7x^2 + 9xy + 3(y^2)z, what are the components of the force vector F ?


    3. The attempt at a solution
    These are the answers I've come up with. I've gotten Fy and Fz correct, but the Fx is wrong and I'm pretty sure its actually right. However, I would love to be proven wrong lol.
    Fx=-14x-9y
    Fy=-9x-6yz
    Fz=-3y^2
