What work is done by a force $F=(2xN)i+(3N)j$,with $x$ in meters,that moves a particle from a position $r_i=(2m)i+(3m)j$ to a position $r_f=-(4m)i-(3m)j$?

$\begin{array}{1 1}-6J\\-5J\\6J\\-15J\end{array} $

Answer : -6J
We use the general definition of work (for a two-dimensional problem),
$W=\int\limits_{x_i}^{x_f}F_x(r)dx+\int\limits_{y_i}^{y_f} F_y(r)dy$
With $F_x=2x$ and $F_y=3$
