I'm given this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A vector field is given in cylindrical coordinates as:

F=(A)(s)(PhiHat) + (B)(z)(zhat)

Where A and B are constants. Could F be an electrostatic field ? Why or why not ?

I kind of feel stupid asking this because I feel like I should know, but, I'm currently braindead after having just spent hours doing the previous 29 problems.

Thanks,

Dan
