Finding the curl and divergence

  1. May 12, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    [tex]\vec{F}(x,y,z) = x^2y\vec{i} + y^2z^3\vec{j} + xyz\vec{k}[/tex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I got:

    Curl: [tex] (xz - 3y^2z^2)\vec{i} + (-yz)\vec{j} + (-x^2)\vec{k}[/tex]
    Div: [tex] 2xy + 2yz^3 + xy[/tex]

    Are these right?

    Looks good to me (although I would write the divergence as [itex] 3xy + 2yz^3 [/itex]:wink:)
