Going over vector fields and i was wondering how they got the solution to the following problem (#1):
There is no x or y, so how would i be able to plot points to sketch the field?
solution:
thanks.
It may be helpful to remember that a vector field assigns a vector to each point in
So in your case what it is saying is
this is telling you that the x component of the vector is and the y component is
So for any point in space (the vector field does not depend of x or y) the vector at that point is
