Solution Summary

Gradients are involved in the evalution of an integral. The solution is explained.

Solution Preview

grad(f) = (del(f)/del(x)).i + (del(f)/del(y)).j = (y).i + (x + 3y^2).j

Equate x and y terms separately,
=> del(f)/del(x) = y
=> f = x*y + pure terms of y ....(1)

(del(f)/del(y) = x + 3*y^2
=> f = x*y + y^3 + pure terms of x ...
