I have to found a potential. So, I don't know how to integrate this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F= (x+2y+4z)i+ (2x-3y-z)j+ (4x-y+2z)k(bold are vectors)

I think it goes like this:

Potential...F= -grad U

(x+2y+4z, 2x-3y-z, 4x-y+2z) = (-dU/dx, -dU/dy, -dU/dz)

(-dU/dx,-dU/dy,-dU/dz are partial deriv.)

-dU/dx=x+2y+4z

-U=x^2/2+2y+4z+C(y,z)

What know? Please help!
