Find the circulation of F(x,y) = \langle 2y, -\sin y \rangle around the circle C of radius...


Find the circulation of {eq}\mathbf F(x,y) = \langle 2y, -\sin y \rangle {/eq} around the circle {eq}C {/eq} of radius 3 centered at the origin oriented counter clockwise.

Calculating the Circulation:

The objective is to calculate the circulation by using Green's theorem.

The general form of Green's theorem is {eq}\displaystyle \int _{C} F \cdot dr = \iint_{R} \left ( \frac{\partial Q}{\partial x} - \frac{\partial P}{\partial y}\right ) dA {/eq}

By converting into polar coordinates, we have to find the limit for integration.

We have to integrate the function in the order of {eq}\displaystyle dr \ and \ \displaystyle d\theta {/eq}.
