The second vectorfield is conservative, Curl is zero.
I think you might have made some mistake perhaps when calculating
So try that again.
The first one is correct.
Hi, for the following problem, it says both the vector fields are conservative and therefore will have potential functions.
Now, we know that if F is conservative then curl F = 0, which is true for the first vector field and the potential function for the first one is:
but it looks like the second vector field is not conservative. Please help me out with the second vector field...I dont know if it has a potential function....
For each of the conservative vector fields below, find a potential function f.
