Magnetic Field Theory Terms and Formulae Terms Divergence - A property of a vector field that measures its tendency to move away from a given point. Curl - A property of a vector field that indicates the amount and direction of rotational motion in the field. Formula The divergence of a vector field ÷ F = + + Gauss' Theorem Mathematical equation relating volume and surface integrals using the divergence of a given function:
