Subscript c means that in the differentiation the term with that subscript will be treated as a constant.

(a) Let’s assume that the vector field is ( ) A r ! ! and ( ) ( ) A r B r !" # ! ! ! ! and ( ) ( ) A r r * ! + # ! ! ! . ( ) r ! is a shorthand for coordinates of a point say ( ) , , x y z in the Cartesian coordinate system. If we know ( ) A r !" ! ! only we can form infinitely many vector fields ( ) Z r ! ! by adding the gradient of a scalar function to ( ) A r ! ! such that ( ) ( ) ( ) Z r A r r , # ’ ! ! ! ! ! ! . Note that ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) Z r A r r A r r A r B r , , !" # !" ’ ! # !" ’ !"! # !" # ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! since ( ) 0 r , !"! - ! . Hence there are infinitely many vector fields having the same curl and knowing the curl of a vector field we cannot uniquely find the field. If we know ( ) A r ! + ! ! only we can form infinitely many vector fields ( ) Z r !

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
