1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given a conservative force with the Force given as F=y^2(i)+2xy(j), what is the potential function related to it. 2. Relevant equations -dU/dx = F 3. The attempt at a solution I know I have to integrate the components but I don't know how... since the (i) direction was differentiated with respect to x would I just treat the y as constant and say F=xy^2(i)+xy^2(j) + c ?
