Determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is true, explain why. If it is false, explain why or give an example that disproves the statement.If F is a vector field, then curl F is a vector field.

To determine

Whether the statement “If F is a vector field, then Curl F is a vector field” is true or false.

Explanation

Formula used:

Consider the two three-dimensional vectors such as a=a1i+a2j+a3k and  b=b1i+b2j+b3k .

Write the expression of cross product between the three vectors a and b.

a×b=|ijka1a2a3b1b2b3| (1)

Consider F is a three-dimensional vector field that is F(x,y,z)=F1i+F2j+F3k .

The CurlF is calculated as follows.

×F=(xi+yj+zk)×(F1i+F2j+F3k)

Find the cross product of these two vectors using equation (1)
