    how did u get r(t) i know you used the points but why did u pick t for the second set of points

    the t used is just a variable scalar to stretch the vector to all point along the line from the point used to anchor it to the line

    so how would i find F. dr/dt where T=dr/dt?

    i dont recall the flow stuff to clearly, but does this look familiar? \[\frac{dr}{dt}=\frac{dr}{dx}\frac{dx}{dt}+\frac{dr}{dy}\frac{dy}{dt}\]

    how would i get it i know its a derivative would it be r(t)= -i-3j

    then thats its; dot F and r' together to get a scalar equation to integrate right?

    the line is from t=0 to t=1 giving us\[\int_{0}^{1}-4-t^2+4t-9t+12~dt\]\[\int_{0}^{1}-t^2-5t+8~dt\]

    the Force equation gives us the force at each for each x,y point along the line the lines vector equation gives us the x and y values along the path F(r) is just defining the forces along the path; dotting with r' tho has me a little baffled at an explanation at the moment tho ;)

    for each lattice point on a graph you draw a little arrow indicating the direction and magnitude of the vector associated with the values of x and y (or whatever reference frame your using) at that point
