MathSofiya Group Title

Evaluate the line integral \[\int_c F\cdot dr\] where c is the vector function \[\hat{r}(t)=t^3\hat i-t^2 \hat j+ t \hat k\] and \[F(x,y,z)=sinx\hat i + cosy \hat j+zx \hat k\] Here is how far I have gotten so far: \[\hat{r}'(t)=3t^2\hat i-2t \hat j+ \hat k\]

    oh my, I did I similar problem 28 days ago http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/50060b97e4b06241806745b8 and I'm also looking at http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcIII/LineIntegralsVectorFields.aspx but I can't seem to remember... What do i substitute in for x and y, do I pick which one I want t to be?

    Hey i think I got it! \[x=t^3;y=-t^2;z=t\] YES?

    That would give me: \[F(r(t))=sin(t^3)\hat i +cos(-t^2)\hat j+t^4 \hat k \]

    \[\int_{t=0}^{t=1}\left(sin(t^3)\hat i +cos(-t^2)\hat j+t^4 \hat k\right)\cdot\left(3t^2\hat i -2t\hat j +\hat k \right) dt\]
