Curl of a Vector Field

 Description Calculate the curl of a vector field.

Define the coordinate system.

 > $\mathrm{VectorCalculus}\left[\mathrm{SetCoordinates}\right]\left({\mathrm{cartesian}}\left[{x}{,}{y}{,}{z}\right]\right):$

Define the vector field.

 > $\mathrm{VectorCalculus}\left[\mathrm{VectorField}\right]\left(⟨{y}{,}{0}{,}{-}{x}⟩\right)$
 $\left({y}\right){\stackrel{{_}}{{e}}}_{{x}}{-}{x}{\stackrel{{_}}{{e}}}_{{z}}$ (1)

Determine the curl of the vector field.

 > $\mathrm{VectorCalculus}\left[\mathrm{Curl}\right]\left(\right)$
 ${\stackrel{{_}}{{e}}}_{{y}}{-}{\stackrel{{_}}{{e}}}_{{z}}$ (2)
