Summary

We calculate "step by step" the line integral along the path of a vectorial field. You can follow two different paths and select three representative fields to distinguish conservative fields from non-conservative ones. Also illustrated are the notions of potential, potential difference, energy, work and the orthogonality between fields and equipotentials.

Select a field distribution thendrag the cursor M.

Learning goals

  • To compute line integrals along different paths.
  • To illustrate the characteristics of some “conservative” fields.
