Please Check! Line integral: \[\int\limits_{C}^{}x ^{2}dx+y ^{2}dy\] of the line segment from (0,2) to (4,3)

    Is it: \[\int\limits_{0}^{4}16t ^{2}(4)+(2+t)^{2}(1)dt\]

    The parameterized curve is r(t)=(4t, 2+t) right?

    I think I have it down correctly, I'm just not sure if the limit is from 0 to 4

    we need to parametrize the line from 0,2 to 4,3 right?

    4,3 -0-2 ----- <4,1> is the direction vector, and we can apply it to either point given so one parametric could be: x = 0 + 4t y = 2 + t

    That's what I got! I'm not sure about the limits of integration though

    the dx and dy parts in your post got me confuddled. im used to seeing a ds in it

    x = 0 + 4t dx = 4 dt y = 2 + t dy = dt

    I have that down @amistre64 I'm just really not sure about the limits. I just used the x coordinates.

    when t=0 we are at (0,2) when t=? we are at (4,3)

    0 = 0 + 4t 2 = 2 + t t=0 4 = 0 + 4t 3 = 2 + t t = 1 so the limit of our t is 0 to 1

    we are changing x and y into functions of t correct?

    then "with respect to t" the line is from t=0 to t=1 since (0,2) is t=0; and (4,3) is t=1

    we are simply defining all the terms with respect to t; x,y and movement

    I have another question that asks for the line integral that consists of the arc of the circle x^2+y^2=4 from (2,0 to (0,2) I know how to find the line integral, but the limits are what I'm not sure about again

    The parameterized curve is (2cost,2sint)

    is it asking you to define it by the line that goes from 2,0 to 0,2? or from the arc that goes from 2,0 to 0,2 ?

    It says the arc of the circle from (2,0) to (0,2)

    x = r cos(t) y = r sin(t) and from the equation r = 2 x = 2 cos(t) dx = -2sin(t) y = 2 sin(t) dy = 2 cos(t) what is the value of t for the point x=2, y=0? what is the value of t for the point x=0, y=2?

    cos(t)=1 and sin(t)=1?

    2 = 2 cos(t) 0 = 2 sin(t) cos(t) = 1 and sin(t) = 0 when t = 0 0 = 2 cos(t) 2 = 2 sin(t) cos(t) = 0 and sin(t) = 1 when t = pi/2

    So it's from 0 to pi/2 right?
