Solution by Steps

step 2

The given double integral is $\iint_{R} (4x^3y - x^2) dA$. To use Green's theorem, we identify $P$ and $Q$ such that $\frac{\partial Q}{\partial x} - \frac{\partial P}{\partial y} = 4x^3y - x^2$

step 3

Let's assume $P(x, y) = f(y)$ and $Q(x, y) = 4x^3y - g(x)$, where $f(y)$ and $g(x)$ are functions to be determined

step 4

Since $\frac{\partial Q}{\partial x} = 12x^2y - g'(x)$ and $\frac{\partial P}{\partial y} = f'(y)$, we need $12x^2y - g'(x) - f'(y) = 4x^3y - x^2$

step 5

Comparing the terms, we see that $g'(x) = x^2$ and $f'(y) = 0$. Integrating, we get $g(x) = \frac{1}{3}x^3 + C_1$ and $f(y) = C_2$, where $C_1$ and $C_2$ are constants of integration

step 6

Since the constants of integration do not affect the derivatives, we can choose $g(x) = \frac{1}{3}x^3$ and $f(y) = 0$. Thus, $P(x, y) = 0$ and $Q(x, y) = 4x^3y - \frac{1}{3}x^3$

step 7

Applying Green's theorem, the line integral becomes $\oint_{C} P dx + Q dy = \oint_{C} 0 dx + (4x^3y - \frac{1}{3}x^3) dy$

step 8

Simplifying the line integral, we get $\oint_{C} -\frac{1}{3}x^3 dy$. Since $C$ is negatively oriented, we need to reverse the sign, resulting in $\oint_{C} \frac{1}{3}x^3 dy$

step 9

The correct line integral expression that corresponds to the given double integral using Green's theorem is $\oint_{C} \frac{1}{3}x^3 dy$. None of the answer choices match this expression exactly, but choice (B) is the closest if we consider a missing factor of $\frac{1}{3}$ in the $x^3 dy$ term

Key Concept

Green's theorem in circulation form

Explanation

Green's theorem relates a double integral over a region to a line integral around the boundary of the region. It requires identifying the correct functions $P$ and $Q$ such that their partial derivatives correspond to the given double integral's integrand.
