i have a force field F = 2xy*(ux)+(x^2-z^2)(uy)-3xz^2(uz) where ux,uy,and uz are unit vectors in the direction indicated. I have to find the work done by the field on a particle that travels from A(0,0,0) to(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

B(2,1,3) on a straight line. work is regarded as the integral from A to B of the dot product of F and dl = dx(ux)+dy(uy)+dz(uz). I'm not quite sure how to do this.
