Vector Field "F" is Path Independent

MVCALC-NOJCOG

If a vector field $\vec{F}$ is path independent then...

A

$\int_C \vec{F} \cdot ds = 0$ for any curve $C$.

B

$\int_C \vec{F} \cdot ds = 0$ for any simple closed curve $C$.

C

$\int_C \vec{F} \cdot ds = V(P) - V(Q)$ for potential function $V$ and curve $C$ from points $P$ to $Q$.

D

$\vec{F}$ is conservative.

E

None of the Above
