Hello! I need some help with a simple line integral. If there's someone out there who wouldn't mind explaining their work, could he/she lend a hand?
the problem is:
Let C be the curve which is the union of two line segments, the first going from (0, 0) to (-4, 2) and the second going from (-4, 2) to (-8, 0).
Computer the line integral
i've tried solving for this by parameterizing the 2 line segments in terms of t, and calculated an incorrect answer of 32.
