    I need perfect step by step solution please.

    A force is given by: (vector)F(x, y, z) = (yz)x(^) + (xz)y(^) + (yx)z(^).

    a. Find the work done by this force when a particle is taken from (0, 0, 2) to (2, 4, -3). Can you choose any path, or does the answer depend on the path?
    b. Can a potential energy function be specified for this force? If so, find an appropriate function.

    A force is given by :
    (please see the attached file)

    (a) Find the work done when a particle is taken from to Can we choose any path, or does the answer depend on the path?

    To determine whether the work done in going from A to B is path-dependent, we must compute the curl of F. If the work done is path-independent; otherwise it is path-dependent.

    We have:
    (please see the ...

    Solution Summary
