    Green's Theorem

    I'm not sure how to solve problems using greens of this form;

    Use Green's theorem to find the counterclockwise circulation and outward flux for the field F and curve C:

    F=(arctan(y/x))i + (ln(x^2 + y^2))j

    C: The triangle bounded by y=0, x=1, y=x

    Can someone please help!

    I wrote the wrong C boundary;

    it's actually
    c: The boundary of the region defined by the polar coordinate inequalities
    r between 1 and 2
    theta between 0 and pi

    I know the formulas for green's but it's the polar coordinates that are confusing me...
