## Consider a vector function F(r) which is the gradient of a scalar function U(r). The scalar function U is called the scalar potential of the field F. The vector function F(r) has the following properties:

## Consider a vector function F(r) which is the curl of a vector function W(r). The vector function W is called the vector potential of the field F. The vector function F(r) has the following properties:
