vector fields (V), or meaningless (M).
a. div f
b. f
c.  F
d. div( f )
e. curl( f )
f.  (div F)
g. curl(curl F)
h. div(div F)
i.  ( f )
j. div(curl( f ))
k. curl(div( f ))

#3 Determine whether the path x (t )  (et cos t , et (sin t  cos t ), et sin t ) is a flow line for the
vector field F  ( x  z , 2 x, y ) .

Explain why F  x, y, z    2 xy  z  i   x 2  y  j   x  yz  1 k cannot be the gradient of
some scalar field f without mentioning curl. (That is, show that there is no scalar function f
such that F  f ).

Suppose F  x, y, z    2 xy  z  i   x 2  y  j   x  1 k . Determine whether or not F is a
conservative vector field (i.e. is there a scalar function f such that F  f ?). If it is, find
the function f for which F  f . If not, explain clearly.
