Problem 10.3 E=-VV_aA at= B=VXA=@J This is a funny set of potentials for a I stationary point charge I q at the origin. (V = ~ ~, A = 0 would, of 41TEO r course, be the customary choice.)

We cannot in general pick A = O-this would make B = 0. [Findingsuch a gauge function would amount to expressing A as - V A,and we know that vector functions cannot in general be written as gradients-only if they happen to have curl zero, which A (ordinarily) does not.] Problem 10.8 l.From the product rule:
