# Green's Theorem & Line Integral confusion

1. May 18, 2012

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
a) Evaluate the work done by the force field F(x, y) = (3y^(2) + x)i + 4x^(3)j over the curve
r(t) = e^(t)i + e^(3t)j, tε[0, ln(2)].
b) Using Green’s theorem, find the area enclosed by the curve r(t) and the segment that
joins the points (1, 1) and (2, 8).
c) Find the flux of F across the curve described in b).

2. Relevant equations
I may be missing something but for the life of me I can't figure out how to answer part b.). I already have part a.) and can do part c.) just need to figure out the limits for part be.

3. The attempt at a solution
a.)∫(0 to ln2 )[3e^(7t) + e^(2t) + 12e^(7t)]dt= 2547

B.)Greens Theorem
∫(12x^2-(6y+1))dA

Any help would be awesome!

For part (b): Draw the graph of the curve r(t) in the given interval. You only need to plot 3 points to get a general idea of the shape of the graph. Try the following values of t: 0, ln (1) and ln (2). Then, plot the line that joins the points (1,1) and (2,8). Find its equation. Then describe the enclosed region and find its area using the Green's theorem.
