Hey there, I have a quite simple question. If you're integrating a line integral over a perimeter of a square, would you find parametrize each of the lines and find 4 different integrations along those lines and add them up to get an answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so if the square has sides parallel to the x and y axes, then dy = 0 for the horizontal sides and dx = 0 for the vertical sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am supposed to use Green's theorem for this one. Which I don't really understand ;(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0green's theorem applies when you have a closed space created by which has 4 different curves as its boundaries. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green%27s_theorem
