## Vector potential and constant magnetic flux density

Hi,

I would like to verify analytically that a vector potential of the form A=1/2(-yB0,xB0,0) produces a constant magnetic flux density of magnitude B0 in the z direction.
(I guess I'd have to use the relation B=$$\forall$$$$\wedge$$A...)

 Recognitions: Science Advisor That is correct (assuming you meant to write the symbol $$\nabla$$). Do you have a question?
 Nope, I just look for a method to prove it mathematically
