    Basically we are given the following function f(x,y,z) = y sin^2 x + zx^2 cosy

    along the path from the point (0,0,0) to (1,1,1) along a straight line between these two points..

    So am i right in thinking: we are looking for integral of f ds

    so paramatise it as x=t y=t z=t

    dt = root 3 ds

    so it is root 3 times integral from 0 to 1 of t sin^2 t + t^3 cos y dt?


    Yeah that looks like a good way of doing it. Question was pretty conveniently written to allow you to get away without doing any vector calculus shame...
