    vector integration question

    Could anybody show me how I get the boundary conditions for this problem.

    \int F.dr

    for

    F=xzi+(y+z)j+xk

    along C given by

    x=t, y=t^2,z=t^3

    between (1,1,1) and (2,4,8)

    I can do the integral but I don't know how the limits are t=0 to t=1 from the above ??

    They aren't.

    (1, 1, 1) mean x = 1, y = 1 and z = 1. Therefore t = 1.

    (2, 4, 8) means x = 2, y = 4, z = 8. Therefore t = 2.
