# More Line Integrals and Work by a Force Field

## Lecture no. 29 from the course: Understanding Multivariable Calculus: Problems, Solutions, and Tips

Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

One of the most important applications of the line integral is its ability to calculate work done on an object as it moves along a path in a force field. Learn how vector fields make the orientation of a path significant.
