1 Section 18.2 Computing Line Integrals over Parameterized Curves

2 Last section we began to examine line integrals Now we need to figure out how to evaluate them Main problem: Evaluate the following where C is the oriented curve parameterized by –In 2 space –In 3 space

3 If C is piecewise smooth and is a continuous vector field we have If

4 In 3 space

5 Example 1 and C is the right hand side of the unit circle –So we will need the parameterization of C Example 2 and C is the triangle joining (1,0), (0,1) and (-1,0) –In this case we will need to find parametric equations for each curve Lets look at calculating line integrals with Maple
