Prove the identity, assuming that the appropriate partial derivatives exist and are continuous. If f is a scalar field and F, G are vector fields, then fF, F · G, and F × G are defined by(fF)(x, y, z) = f(x, y, z) F(x, y, z)(F · G)(x, y, z) = F(x, y, z) · G(x, y, z)(F × G)(x, y, z) = F(x, y, z) × G(x, y, z)24. curl(F + G) = curl F + curl G

To determine

To prove: The vector field of the form curl(F+G)=curlF+curlG .

Explanation

Formula used:

Consider the standard equation of a curl F.

curlF=|ijkxyzPQR| (1)

Consider F(x,y,z)=P1i+Q1j+R1k and G(x,y,z)=P2i+Q2j+R2k .

Find curl(F+G) .

curl(F+G)=(P1i+Q1j+R1k)+(P2i+Q2j+R2k)=curl(P1,Q1,R1+P2,Q2,R2)=curlP1+P2,Q1+Q2,R1+R2

Substitute P1+P2 for P , Q1+Q2 for Q and R1+R2 for R in equation (1),

curl(F+G)=|ijkxyzP1+P2Q1+Q2R1+R2|={[y(R1+R2)z(Q1+Q2)</
