Given an E field, determine if it's a possible electrostatic field. If so, determine a potential
The Attempt at a Solution
Just more of a clarification, since my friend and I both attempted this question differently.
I took the divergence and the curl of the given E field.
The divergence wasn't 0, so I said that this isn't an electrostatic field and I didn't determine a potential.
My friend took the curl, it was 0. So they found a potential for it.
So this confused me, and I am now asking the question.
Thanks for your help!
