Path integral/Stokes's and Green's theorem

  1. Feb 3, 2012 #1
    I meant Line integral.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I want to find the path integral of a vector function F over a closed path in Euclidean space with z = 0.

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I was wondering if it is allowed to first use Stoke's theorem and then Green's theorem. I would end up getting div(curl(F)) which I believe equals to zero. But I am not sure if I'm allowed to use Green's theorem in this case.

    Can you post the original problem and your work so far?
