Consider an object describing an elliptical path in the plane given by r (t) =
(2 cos t, 6sin t), where t is in the interval [0, 2].
if the object is subjected to a field with a force given by the expression G (x, y) = (4xy, y^2), calculate the work done
by G to move the object along the trajectory from (2, 0) to (0, 6), in direct order.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use Polar Coordinate x(t)= 2 cos(t) y(t)= 6 sin(t) P = 4 x y Q = y^2 Compute P(x(t),y(t)) x'(t) + Q(x(t),y(t))x'(t)=120 cos(t) sin^2(t) Integrate the last expression for t= to Pi/2 to obtain 40
