Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0div F refers to the amt of material coming in or out of a certain surface which is chosen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its the volume integral of the div

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait div of F is the amount going in or out so that is Flux right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no flux is actually the volume integral of the div...physically u can see that divergence refers to how much of a sink or source of the field is present at that point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In this case the vector field is velocity so what does it mean the amount of velocity going in or out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0div is actually a representative indicator of how much is coming out or going in, and its volume integral is the amount that goes in or comes out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like this is generally studied as the velocity of a fluid, so the divergence refers to how much fluid is coming out or going out of that point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the curl is another vector what does it represent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the curl is the tendency of the fluid to rotate about an axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0SO there can only one curl say of a tornado right? its the center point and it point down...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah..sort of..bt thats mechanical rotation as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hey romero divergence is the volume integral of flux..see flux shows how much is coming out of a particular surface..bt when u do a volume integral, it gives u d actual amt...sorry..
