Hi ssss! :)

Div Curl F = 0

See e.g. here.

I don't understand what you mean by "Div Curl F(F bar not only F)".

Not that I'd necessarily be able to solve it if I understood it, but maybe someone else would.

I believe the OP meant that when he wrote F, he did not just mean F, but F with a bar over it.

There are two kinds of Divergence Curl F and FwithBar(F bar) , so I want to know the value of both

I'm afraid there's only one version:

$\displaystyle \nabla \cdot (\nabla \times \vec{\mathbf{F}}) = \text{div } \text{curl } \vec{\mathbf{F}} = 0$

Curl is an operator that can only work on a 3 dimensional vector.
