Evaluate the line integral:

int(ydx+xdy) where the path C is y=sinx from (0,0) to (pi/2,0)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

(pi/2,0) is not a solution to y=sinx. I could use the fundamental theorem but for my potential function I get F(x,y)=xy which would give me zero with those endpoints...answer in the book gives pi/2. Is this an error? Thanks
