Calculus 3 Lecture 15.4 Line Integrals on CONSERVATIVE Vector Fields (Independence of Path) How to perform Line Integrals over Conservative Vector Fields and what Independence of Path means.

A conservative vector field (also called a path-independent vector field) is a vector field dlvf whose line integral dlint over any curve dlc depends only on the endpoints of dlc. The integral is independent of the path that dlc takes going from its starting point to its ending point. The below applet ilgraphicrates the two-dimensional conservative vector field dlvf(xy)(xy). Line integrals and vector fields. This is the currently selected item. Using a line integral to find work. Parametrization of a reverse path . Scalar field line integral independent of path direction. Vector field line integrals dependent on path direction. Path independence for line integrals. Closed curve line integrals of conservative vector fields. Example of closed line integral of and C is the directed line segment from  to [0-38]. In connection with the Fundamental Theorem for Line Integrals it is of interest to be able to recognize when a vector field is a gradient and to recover a function of which it is a gradient.

In vector calculus a conservative vector field is a vector field that is the gradient of some function. Conservative vector fields have the property that the line integral is path independent the choice of any path between two points does not change the value of the line integral.Path independence of the line integral is equivagraphict to the vector field being conservative. Vector calculus. In qualitative terms a line integral in vector calculus can be thought of as a measure of the total effect of a given tensor field along a given curve. For example the line integral over a scalar field (rank 0 tensor) can be interpreted as the area under the field carved out by a particular curve. In this section we will define the third type of line integrals well be looking at line integrals of vector fields. We will also see that this particular kind of line integral is related to special cases of the line integrals with respect to x y and z. ## Chapter Review Vector Fields Section
