Homework Statement


For some reason I can't find anywhere online that gives a good example of the curl of a vector function in spherical coordinates. I need to compute ∇ X A where

A = [itex]\frac{ksinθ}{r^{2}}[/itex][itex]\widehat{ϕ}[/itex]

If anyone can point me in the right direction of a good video or text tutorial that shows the curl of a vector potential in spherical coordinates I would really appreciate it. Thanks.


Homework Equations



I know how the curl is set up in spherical coordinates from my text book I'm just not one hundred percent sure how to go about it.
