I need perfect step by step solution please.
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.
** Please see the attachment for the complete solution description **
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.
(please see the ...
In this solution we solve problems involving a conservative force field.
