Line Integral of a Helix from Point A to B

Re: Line Integral of a Helix from Point A to BFirst, find the limits of integration. That is, find the start and endpoints of your path. So we need to find F(c(t)) and c'(t). Once you find these, take the dot product, and then integrate. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
