Line Integral of a Vector.
This programed booklet is designed for the engineering student who understands and can use vector and unit vector notation, components of a vector, parallel law of vector addition, and the dot product of two vectors. Content begins with work done by a force in moving a body a certain distance along some path. For each of the examples and problem solving discussions there is given a path whose equation in terms of the coordinates is known and a mathematical expression for the direction and magnitude of the applied force. Through such a series of examples and problem solving discussions, the student is led to the idea of the line integral of a vector. (RP)
