See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Describe he given information

The curls of the vector functions has to be evaluated.

## Step 2: Define the curl.

The curl of a vector is defined as , expressed as

## Step 3: Compute the curl of v.

Compute curl of vector V .

Solve using matrix form as,

## Step 4: Compute the curl of v for vector in part (a).

(a)

The vector is defined as. . The components of vector v are written as

Substitute for , for , and 3xz for into .
