I posted this question before and told to check YouTube, but after watching many videos I’m still confused on how to do it! Please help if you can. Thanks

do you know how to take partial derivatives?


I can understand being confused by the Curl, but Divergence is so straightforward I just don't

see how you can be confused by it.


To find the Divergence of a vector field take

the partial with repect to x of the x coordinate

the partial with repect to y of the y coordinate

the partial with repect to z of the z coordinate


and add them.  That's all there is to it.


See if you can do that and then we'll talk about the Curl.
