(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Evaluate the line integral, where C is the given curve:

[tex]\int_C\,y\,ds \, \,\,\,\,C:\,x=t^2\,\,\,\,y=t[/tex]

for t between 0 and 2 (out of curiousity, how do you make the "greater than or equal 2" in LateX)

Okay, in the book the line integral is defined as [tex]\int_C F\cdot dr=\int_a^bF(r(t))\cdot r'(t)\,dt[/tex]

Okay now what is F in this case? What is "ds"? what happened? Why is the problem format so different from the definition?

Can someone help me outconceptuallyon this one?

Thanks!!

Casey
