## Homework Statement

Given an E field, determine if it's a possible electrostatic field. If so, determine a potential

## Homework Equations

∇⋅E

∇×E

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]

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!
