Curl of electrostatic field vector

  1. Aug 6, 2016 #1
    I know that the curl of electrostatic field vector is zero. I want to know what will be the curl of electrostatic field at the edge region of the finite parallel plate capacitor?

    Zero.

    Electrostatic forces are conservative in nature. So, regardless of where the field is, their curl is always zero.
