## What is meant by Divergenceless field?

Formally, a vector field is divergenceless if its divergence is zero. More intuitively, the divergence is the net extent to which a vector field “flows out of a point.” So a divergenceless vector field does not have net flow out of (or into) any point.

**What does divergence mean in math?**

divergence, In mathematics, a differential operator applied to a three-dimensional vector-valued function. The result is a function that describes a rate of change. The divergence of a vector v is given by. in which v1, v2, and v3 are the vector components of v, typically a velocity field of fluid flow.

### What do you mean by solenoidal field?

In vector calculus a solenoidal vector field (also known as an incompressible vector field, a divergence-free vector field, or a transverse vector field) is a vector field v with divergence zero at all points in the field: A common way of expressing this property is to say that the field has no sources or sinks.

**What is mean by divergent in physics?**

the act, fact, or amount of diverging: a divergence in opinion. (in physics, meteorology, etc.) the total amount of flux escaping an infinitesimal volume at a point in a vector field, as the net flow of air from a given region.

#### What is the divergence of scalar?

The divergence of a vector field simply measures how much the flow is expanding at a given point. It does not indicate in which direction the expansion is occuring. Hence (in contrast to the curl of a vector field), the divergence is a scalar.

**What is unit of divergence?**

Divergence is the flux per unit volume through an infinitesimally-small closed surface surrounding a point.

## What are Solenoidal and rotational field?

A Solenoidal vector field is known as an incompressible vector field of which divergence is zero. Hence, a solenoidal vector field is called a divergence-free vector field. On the other hand, an Irrotational vector field implies that the value of Curl at any point of the vector field is zero.

**What are solenoidal and irrotational vectors?**

An irrotational vector field is a vector field where curl is equal to zero everywhere. Similarly, an incompressible vector field (also known as a solenoidal vector field) is one in which divergence is equal to zero everywhere.

### What does divergence mean in economics?

Divergence is when the price of an asset is moving in the opposite direction of a technical indicator, such as an oscillator, or is moving contrary to other data. Divergence warns that the current price trend may be weakening, and in some cases may lead to the price changing direction.

**What do you mean by divergence of light?**

Divergent beam of light : Light rays from a point source of light travel in all directions, moving away with time. Such a beam of light is called a divergent beam of light.

#### What is a divergenceless quantity in physics?

A divergenceless quantity is a vector field such that ∇ ⋅ v = 0. This can be related to the flux by the divergence theorem: The righthand side of the above equation is, of course, the flux through the surface. So, if the vector field is divergenceless, the flux is zero everywhere.

**What is the divergence of a divergenceless vector field?**

Formally, a vector field is divergenceless if its divergence is zero. More intuitively, the divergence is the net extent to which a vector field “flows out of a point.” So a divergenceless vector field does not have net flow out of (or into) any point.

## What is the physical interpretation of divergence?

Physical interpretation of divergence. If the divergence is nonzero at some point then there is compression or expansion at that point. (Note that we are imagining the vector field to be like the velocity vector field of a fluid (in motion) when we use the terms flow and so on.)

**What does it mean to be a Dauntless divergent?**

Divergents are people who shows multiple traits that belonged in different factions. The best example is the series’ main character Tris who shows traits for Abnegation (selflessness), Dauntless (bravery), and Erudite (intelligence) so she’s categorized as a Divergent.
