This applet allows to explore computing how line integrals integrate up F(r(t)) . r'(t) along a path. Chose a vector field to the left and move your pen over the region. The lineintegral is indicated. Move along a closed path to explore whether the vector field is conservative or not. If the line integral is 0 along any closed curve, the vector field is called conservative.
