Homework Help: Curl of the vector potential

  1. Mar 14, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    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.

    2. Relevant 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.

    3. The attempt at a solution
