Hey pf!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was thinking about how div(curl(f)) = 0 for any vector field f. However, is this true for div and curl in spherical coordinates? It doesn't seem to be.

If not, what needs to happen for this to be true in spherical coordinates??

Thanks all!!
