    Integrating the i, j, and k components with respect to x, y, z (respectively) yields the potential function f=yze^{x^2}+C. You know that f(0,0,0)=-3. So your constant of integration is -3. Therefore your potential function is f=yze^{x^2}-3

    Evaluate that potential function at the point (1,1,7).
