1.F=(x-8z)i+(x+9y+z)j+(x-8y)k find the curl of F

2. Relevant equations

curl of F= del X F

3. The attempt at a solution

1. First I took the partial with respect to y of (x-8y) and subtracted the partial with respect to z of (x+9y+z). From this I got (-8-1) Then I took the partial with respect to x of (x-8y) and subtracted the partial with respect to z of (x-8z), getting (1+8). I then took the partial with respect to x of (x+9y+z) and subtracted the partial with respect to y of (x-8z), getting (1-0). So I took (-8-1)-(1+8)+(1-0) and got an answer of 1, but this was wrong.

2.F=(7e^x)i-(14e^y)j+(7e^z)k find the curl of F

2. Relevant equations

curl of F= del X F

3. The attempt at a solution

2. For this, since I was always gonna be taking the partial with respect to a variable that was not in that part of the function, everything would be zero. Ex: partial with respect to x of -14e^y should be zero I believe
