Question 15 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)

If F = xi + yj + zk, then the magnitude of \nabla X F is __0__.

Answer / Solution

\nabla X F=(\frac{\delta f}{\delta x} i+\frac{\delta f}{\delta y} j+\frac{\delta f}{\delta y} k)\times(xi + yj + zk)

\nabla X F=\begin{bmatrix} i & j  & k\\ \frac{\delta f}{\delta x} & \frac{\delta f}{\delta y} & \frac{\delta f}{\delta z}\\ x & y & z \end{bmatrix}

\left | \nabla X F \right |=i(\frac{\delta f}{\delta y} z-\frac{\delta f}{\delta z} y)-j(\frac{\delta f}{\delta x} z-\frac{\delta f}{\delta z} x)+k(\frac{\delta f}{\delta x} y-\frac{\delta f}{\delta y} x)

\left | \mode (\nabla X F) \right | =i(0-0)-j(0-0)+k(0)

\left | \nabla X F \right |=0 (Ans)
