Check to see if it is conservative. It is. Then find the primitive function. .
hi kalagota, Why + g(y,z) ??? Could you please explain this point to me? Thank you very much.

1) Kalagota use \nabla instead of the monster you are using. 2) You can see if curl is a zero vector to know if it has a scalar potentional.
