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

Use Green's Theorem to calculate the work done by the force field

F = <5x^{2}y^{3}, 7x^{3}y^{2}>

in moving a particle counterclockwise once around the triangle with vertices (0, 0), (3, 0) and 0, 6).

2. The attempt at a solution

I must integrate 6x^{2}y^{2}over the triangle, right? I then get 1944 as the answer, but the correct answer is 972/5. What is wrong?
