Finding the curl in spherical coordinates

  1. Feb 18, 2016 #1
    Hello i've been having trouble finding the curl of
    A⃗ = r^2[e][/Φ].
    Could someone help me please?

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with those symbols. Can you retype it using latex?

    I'm very sorry i'm new here i'm not very familiar with latex here.
    A⃗ = r^2[e][/Φ].
    r^2 would be r squared
    [e][/Φ] would be the unit vector of φ
    :nb)

    Here you can find the formula for the curl in three curvilnear coordinates.
    Somewhat lengthy but introductory guide to latex can be found here.

    ##[A⃗] = r^2 \hat \phi##

    No problem, many members here are also unfamiliar with latex, but I see you have put some times to learn it. That's a good start and ... latex is not so difficult.
