Textbook Problem

Suppose you’re asked to determine the curve that requires the least work for a force field **F** to move a particle from one point to another point. You decide to check first whether **F** is conservative, and indeed it turns out that it is. How would you reply to the request?

To determine

The curve which requires a least work for the force field

Explanation

The initial step is to check whether the field force
