I just finished up a Calculus class which went into fields, and I learned how to find the curl of the field and also the divergence of the field. What I want to know is what does the curl/div of the field actually show us?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also when you have a field (x,y,z) = (Something)i + (something)j + (something)k does that just model the interaction felt at any given point within that field? Is it representative of a nonuniform field?

I also was wondering how do we derive the equations to represent these complexities in real life scenarios? I'm sure the universe doesn't hand us equations to solve for like class
