Can I ask to check on the sign of one of your terms in the integral
i.e. is it
I've been asked to evaluate the line integral
Over the curve
Between the points (0,0) and (2,1).
What I'm trying to do is finding a parametrization x(t) from the given curve and then put that into the integral so I can solve it.
However I can't seem to make it work. I tried solving x for y, so I can say x=t and y is a function of t. Or the other way round would work as well. But the crossterm gets in the way. And the powers of both x and y aren't right to use the ABC formula.
Could anyone help me out on what to do here?
Thanks in advance
Edit: Apologies for the spelling mistake in the thread title. Can't edit it, it seems.
Edit 2: Got one sign in the integral wrong.
