Show Work Step by Step on your TI-89 Calculator Screen

Hello, everyone. This is Tom from everystepcalculus.com. A problem dealing with curl. And whether it’s conservative or not. So let’s do it. Index 8 to get to my menu. Scroll down to curl. They’re all alphabetical. Conservative. And we have the choice of PQR or MNP system. I’m going to use number two MNP system this time. And we’re going to add the function. Alpha before you anything into these entry lines, here. 2 times Y Alpha X squared plus 2 times Y times Z. And Alpha Y squared. I always show you’ve entered so you can change it if you want. I say it’s okay. This is the cross product system for doing to curl. Those are partial derivatives. And we compute each one. This is the I cartesian system. I, J, and K, etc. These turn out to be 00. Let’s see. They’re zeros and this one is not zero. Here’s the answer for the curl. Now go into the menu. Now we want to choose whether it’s conservative. So I’m going to do number one. And so here we have the the calculations and the curl again. Does this equal zero. Say no. Because the curl does not to zero, it is not conservative. So that’s the system. Try to do the curl and try to remember the cross product system of doing those calculations. I never could memorize that that kinda stuff. I have much more important things to memorize. Alright, have a good one.
