As far as I know, Green's Theorem is normally stated for positively oriented curves (counterclockwise). If a curve is oriented clockwise, is it just the negative version?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\oint Pdx + Qdy = - \int\int \frac{\partial Q}{\partial x} - \frac{\partial P}{\partial y} = \int\int \frac{\partial P}{\partial y} - \frac{\partial Q}{\partial x}[/tex]
