Line integral of vector field
- Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano
Recall that if C is a piece-smooth, simple closed curve and v is a vector field in two dimensions; then
Net outward flux= and Circulation=The following simulation shows some values of the net outward flux and circulation for and different curves. Instructions:
- Drag the center of the circle (left) to change its position.
- Change the curve: Line segment or semi-circle.
