### Example Question #591 : Calculus 3

Write the parametric equations of the line that passes through the points and .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

First, you must find the vector that is parallel to the line.

This vector is

.

From the points we were given, this becomes

.

To form the parametric equations, we need to pick a point that lies on the line we want.

The point is used.

The vector form of the line is from the following equation

.

We then rewrite each expression in terms of the variables x, y, and z.

### Example Question #1 : Line Integrals

Evaluate the line integral of the function

over the line segment from to

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Evaluate the line integral using the function

over the line segment from to

**Define the Parametric Equations to Represent **

The points given lie on the line . Define the parameter , then can be written . Therefore, the parametric equations for are:

_________________________________________________________________

The line integral of a function along the curve with the parametric equation and with is defined by:

(1)

Where is the vector derivative of the vector , therefore is simply the magnitude of the vector derivative.

______________________________________________________________

**Write the vector :**

**Differentiate, **

**The absolute value (magnitude) of this vector is: **

**Write the function in terms of the parameter : **

Insert everything into Equation (1) noting that the limits of integration will be due to the fact that the parameter varies from to over the line segment we are integrating over.

### Example Question #1 : Line Integrals

Evaluate , where , and is any path that starts at , and ends at .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Since there isn't a specific path we need to take, we just evaluate at the end points.

### Example Question #1 : Line Integrals

Use Green's Theorem to evaluate , where is a triangle with vertices , , with positive orientation.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

First we need to make sure that the conditions for Green's Theorem are met.

The conditions are met because it is positively oriented, piecewise smooth, simple, and closed under the region (see below).

In this particular case , and , where , and refer to .

We know from Green's Theorem that

So lets find the partial derivatives.

### Example Question #1 : Green's Theorem

Use Green's Theorem to evaluate the line integral

over the region R, described by connecting the points , orientated clockwise.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Using Green's theorem

since the region is oriented clockwise, we would have

which gives us

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Using Green's theorem

Since the region is oriented clockwise
