Homework

I will grade a sub-selection of the bolded problems.

  • Week 6: No homework, due to exam on Friday, February 15. Instead you should spend your time reviewing for the exam!

  • Week 11: Spring break!

  • Week 12: (Due Friday, March 29) 15.4: 4, 6, 12, 20, 24

    • Calculate the following, where $f(x,y,z) = x\sin(yz)$ and $\vec G = (xyz,0,x+y+z)$:

      • $\operatorname{div} \vec G$

      • $\operatorname{grad} f$

      • $\operatorname{curl} \vec G$

      • $\operatorname{grad} \operatorname{div} \vec G$

      • $\operatorname{div} \operatorname{grad} f$

      • $\operatorname{div} \operatorname{curl} \vec G$

    • It makes sense to take the divergence of the curl of a vector field, because $\operatorname{curl} \vec F$ is a vector field and divergence is applied to vector fields. But it doesn’t make sense to take the curl of the divergence of a vector field, because $\operatorname{div} \vec F$ is a scalar function and curl is applied to vector fields. Which of the following make sense?

      • $\operatorname{grad} \operatorname{curl} \vec F$

      • $\operatorname{curl} \operatorname{grad} f$

      • $\operatorname{grad} \operatorname{div} \operatorname{curl} \vec F$

      • $\operatorname{curl} \operatorname{div} \operatorname{grad} \operatorname{curl} \operatorname{curl} \vec F$

      • $\operatorname{curl} \operatorname{curl} \operatorname{curl} \operatorname{grad} \operatorname{div} \operatorname{curl} \vec F$

    • (It may help to think of curl, div, and grad as spam, bacon, and eggs.

  • Week 13: (Due Friday, April 5) 15.5: 4, 6, 14, 20, 24, 31b (use the parameterization from 31a); 15.6: 3, 13, 18.

  • Week 14: No homework, due to exam on Friday, April 12.
