    Well what are your parameterisations for each part of the contour?

    You must have done similar problems to this one in class and in your notes. The first step is to find a parameterisation for each part of the contour, then sum the integrals that you get from each part of the contour.

    Re: Evaluate the integral?

    Two legs are straight lines lying on the x-axis. Do you see that the angle \Phi does not change, and only \rho, the distance from the origin does? Two of the legs are semi-circles with center at the origin. Do you see that \rho, the distance from the origin, does not change and only \Phi, the angle, changes?
