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

Cacualte the work done by the force field F=(x,y,z) along the path (cos(t),sin(t),t), for 0≤t≤3∏

2. Relevant equations

∫F*ds= ∫F(c(t))dot c'(t) ???

3. The attempt at a solution

No attempt, I don't know where to start. I'm not sure how to start it. Notice, I posted question mark by the relevant equation. Do I plug the path equation into the F vector --- take the derivative of the path vector for c'(t)????

Does this sound right?
