If I don't see how you are attempting the problem I don't know how it is a problem for you so I don't know how to help you.

Oh I get it! Gauss' Law for Magnetic Flux! Right under my nose the whole time.

Let's say we are given a vector field ##A##.

Vector field ##B## is defined as ##B = ∇×A##

Must ##∇⋅A=0## in order for ##B## to exist?
