define the vector field F on the complement of the z-axis by F(x,y,z) = (-yi+xj)/(x^2+y^2)

a). show that curl F=0

which i got my curl F =/= 0........

b). show by direct calculation ∫(c)Fdx=2πfor any horizontal circle C centered at a point on the z-axis.

c). why do a). and b). not contradict Stokes's theorem?

Stokes's Thm:

∫(∂S)Fdx=∫∫(S)(CurlF)ndA

b). show by direct calculation ∫(c)Fdx=2πfor any horizontal circle C centered at a point on the z-axis.

c). why do a). and b). not contradict Stokes's theorem?
