    finding work done by a vector field

    Got a new problem:

    Find the work done by the vector field F = {x^2 + y, y^2 +x, z} along the path which starts at (1,0,0) and then follows the segments from point to point connecting the following points (0,0,1), (0,1,0), and (1,0,1), in that order.

    Thanks

    Hint for an easy way: F is a conservative field.
