Homework Help: Vector Fields in Cartesian and Cylindrical Coordinates, The Curl

  1. Mar 21, 2012 #1
    All necessary information is attached except the answer in Cartesian coordinates, which is -ix-jy+2kz and my work converting back from cylindrical to Cartesian, which I used WolframAlpha for, as the trig is a mess (that is, if the way I am doing this is correct).


    WolframAlpha, however, just gave me this mess back. Would appreciate if someone would let me know if the way I'm going about this is correct. I have a strong feeling the matrix I'm using for reconversion is off.

    Edit: I already posted this in the physics section, but I got no replies, because it is probably more appropriate to place here. See the attachment on the original thread at https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=588902
