    using spherical polar coordinates

    If \underline{A} = f(r)\underline{r} , use spherical polar coordinates to find f(r) if

    (i)  \underline{\nabla} \cdot \underline{A} = 0  and

    (ii)  \underline{\nabla} \times \underline{A} = 0

    Not sure how to do the above I think I manged to find

    f(r) = \frac{C}{r^3} , but I don't know what to do next...

    The second condition is superfluous.
