Please could someone explain to me how to visualise a vector field? Lets say it's v(x, y) = (2.5, -x) on whatever domain. I tried it the same way as I would visualize a scalar field but the results did not correspondent at all with the results I'd expect.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The same for drawing the field along the x and y axis and along lines through the middle that make a 45 degree angle with x and y. Again my results look somewhat weired...

Thanks a lot,

hexa
