Conservative field.

  1. Dec 3, 2011 #1
    It seems there are some problems on the test.
    I find that Curl F is not zero, that means the field is not exact.
    Am I right?

    I agree with you that Curl F ≠ [itex]\vec 0[/itex] so F is not the gradient of a scalar function, which I presume is what you mean by "not exact".
