From Shawna: I am having problems finding the parameterization of a parabola. The question I was given is: Find the work done if a particle moves from the points (2,4) to (1,1) along the parabola y=x^2, while subject to the vector force of F=(x^3y,xy). So how would I start with finding the parameterization of a parabola? Answered by Penny Nom.
