#1(5 pts) Let F ( x, y, z )   3x 2 y  2 y  iˆ   x 3  2 x  ˆj  ( x)kˆ
a) Calculate the curl of F .
b)
Is there a scalar function f such that F  f ? If so, find f. If no such function
exists, explain how you know this to be the case.
#2(5 pts) Let f be a scalar field and F a vector field. Indicate which of the following are scalar fields (S),
vector fields (V), or meaningless (M).
a. div f
b. div(div F)
d.  (div F)
e. curl( f )

are appropriately differentiable, show:
#5(5 pts) The function F ( x, y)  3x3  y 2  9 x  4 y has critical points at (1, 2) and (1, 2) . That
is, F (1, 2) = F (1, 2)  (0, 0) .
Determine whether each of these critical points corresponds to a local maximum, a local minimum,
