Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just looking for tips on "visualizing" vector fields and perhaps drawing them. I have encountered a few that have given me trouble.

As an example,

[tex]\vec{F}(x, y)=[cos(y), -cos(x)][/tex]

Applying [itex] dx/F_1=dy/F_2[/itex] I get,

[tex]sin(x)+sin(y)=C[/tex]

I have also seen what the vector field looks like, but I am wondering if there are any techniques for questions like these.
