(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Write down expressions oer E and B fields in terms of [tex]\varphi[/tex] and [tex]\bar{A}[/tex]. Demonstrate that this definition of B is consistent with the non-existence of magnetic monopoles.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The first part of the question is easy. i.e. bookwork

[tex]B = \nabla \times \bar{A}[/tex]

[tex]E = \nabla\varphi - \frac{\partial{A}}{\partial t}\[/tex]

I dont know how to approach the second part of the question though
