Potential Function and Vector Field Applet
Course Topic(s): Multivariable Calculus | Directional Derivatives and Gradients | Vector Fields and Flowlines | Divergence and Curl
This applet has a user input for a function of two variables. It responds by displaying a 2D shaded graph of the surface overlaid with the gradient vector. A second tab allows for an arbitrary vector field in the plane. It plots the vector field along with a color coded rendition of the curl and divergence. It also shows the flow along the integral curves.
