    Exclamation quick vector field question

    draw the vector field for
    f(x,y)= (1,2) with starting points (0,0) and (3,1)

    should i change (1,2) to like (x,2y) or something? otherwise all of the points would be pointing to the point (1,2) and this does not match the graph in the back of the book

    See the attachment

    on the left is F = i +2 j since the components are constant all vectors
    should point in the same direction

    On the right is what F = x i + 2y j would look like

    By the way how did your test go ?
