Vector V=x^2i+3xz^2j-2xzk(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The divergence of this vector is zero. So it can be expressed as the curl of a vector. I have to find that vector, which is also called the vector potential.

But I don't know how to find it. When I have to find the scalar potential, then it is easier to equate components and then integrate. But in this case, if I equate components, I get two variables of integration. How can I integrate then? Is it possible to find a vector potential like this?
