Homework Help: Line integral conservative fields

  1. Apr 10, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I used ∇ X F for part (a) and part (b) and found both to be ≠ 0. Thus both cases F is not conservative.

    I have no clue about the second part, as both arent conservative...

    Well either there is nothing to be done for the second part or you made a mistake in the first part.
