Line Integrals
Definition
Suppose that f (x, y, z) is a function whose
domain contains the curve C: r(t) = g(t) i +
h(t) j + k(t) k, a ≤ t ≤ b. We partition the
curve into a finite number of subarcs. Let ∆sr
denote the length of the rth subarc. In each
subarc, we choose a point (xr, yr, zr) and form
the sum

n
S   f ( xr , yr , zr ) sr
r 1

## If f is continuous and the functions g, h, and k

have continuous first derivatives, then the
sums S approach a limit as n increases, and
the lengths ∆sr approach zero. We call this
limit the line integral of f over the
curve from a to b.

curve C from a to b by the symbol

Vector Fields

## A vector field on a domain in the plane or in

space is a function that assigns to each point
(x, y, z) in the domain, a vector
F (x, y, z)
= M (x, y, z) i + N (x, y, z) j + P (x, y, z) k.
The simplest example is the position vector
field: r (x, y, z) = x i + y j + z k.
24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 23
The vector field is continuous if the
component functions M, N, and P are
continuous, differentiable if M, N, and P are
differentiable, and so on.
If f (x, y, z) is a differentiable function, then
the gradient field of f is the vector field

f  i + j + k

24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 24
The Work Done by a Force over a
Curve in Space
Suppose that the vector field
F = M (x, y, z) i + N (x, y, z) j + P (x, y, z) k
represents a force throughout a region in
space, and that
r (t) = g (t) i + h (t) j + k (t) k, a ≤ t ≤ b,
is a smooth curve in the region.
24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 25
Remembering that the work done is the force
multiplied by the displacement, we get the
work done by the force F over the smooth
curve C : r (t) = g (t) i + h (t) j + k (t) k from t
= a to t = b is given by the line integral

Flux Across a Plane Curve

Definition n
T
Let C be a simple smooth
closed curve in the C
domain of definition of a
continuous vector field F
= M (x, y) i + N (x, y) j in
the plane. Let n be outward drawn unit vector
to C.
24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 33
Then the flux of F across C is given by the
line integral
 i F.n ds
C

## (The small circle in the integral symbol says

that C is a closed curve and the arrow
indicates that C is traversed in the anti-
clockwise direction.)

## 24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 34

Then the circulation of F across C is given by
the line integral
 i F.T ds
C

## Note the difference between the flux and the

circulation. The flux across C is the line
integral with respect to the arc length of F.n,
the scalar component of F in the direction of
the outward drawn normal. The circulation
of F around C is the line integral of the
24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 35
scalar component of F in the direction of the
unit tangent vector T. Flux is the integral of
the normal component of F; circulation is
the integral of the tangential component of F.

## 1. The normal to the surface f (x, y, z) = c at

the point P (x0, y0, z0) on it is given by the

2. The directional derivative of the function
f (x, y, z) at the point P (x0, y0, z0) in the
direction of the unit vector u is given by
(f ) P . u  | f | cos ,

## 24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 46

• Thus the directional derivative at P is
maximum in the direction of the gradient
vector and the value of this maximum
directional derivative is | f |.
We say the function f (x, y, z) increases
most rapidly in the direction of the

4. The directional derivative at P is
minimum in the direction opposite to that
of the gradient vector and the value of
this minimum directional derivative is
- | f |.
We say the function f (x, y, z) decreases
most rapidly in the direction opposite to

## 24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 48

Example
Find the directional derivative of f (x, y, z) =

f  ( y  z ) i +( z  x) j +(x  y ) k

## 24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 51

Hence a normal at the point P (-1, 2, 3) is
5 i +2 j + k
And hence a unit normal is

Example
Prove that the surfaces 4x2y + z3 = 4 and 5x2
- 2yz = 9x intersect orthogonally at the point

Solution
A normal u to the surface 4x2y + z3 = 4 at
the point P (1, -1, 2) is
(8 xy i +4 x j +3 z k )(1,1,2)  8 i +4 j +12 k

## 24-03-08 Presented by Dr. M.S. Radhakrishnan BITS, Pilani 53

A normal u to the surface 5x2 - 2yz = 9x at
the point P (1, -1, 2) is

[(10 x  9) i -2 z j - 2 y k ](1,1,2)  i - 4j + 2k

u . v = - 8 -16 + 24 = 0 .
Hence the two normals are orthogonal and
so the two given surfaces intersect
orthogonally at the point (1, -1, 2).

17. In what direction from the point (3, 1, -2)
is the directional derivative of f (x, y, z) =
x2 y2 z4 a maximum? Also find the
magnitude of this maximum directional
derivative.
18. Find the directional derivative of f (x, y, z)
= xy2 + yz3 at the point P (2, -1, 1) in the
direction of the normal to the surface
