This implies that the gravitational eld does not have \stable regions" and \unstable regions", the stability property depends only on the number of spatial dimensions. 1) ; It can be seen that the curl is a vector, this is in contrast to the divergence which is a scalar. The notation with the determinant is of course incorrect because the entries in a determinant should be numbers rather than vectors such as x^ or di erentiation operators such as @y = @=@y. However, the notation in terms of a determinant is a simple rule to remember the de nition of the curl in Cartesian coordinates.

The curl increases with the rotation rate, hence it increases with the strength of the vortex. This strength of the vortex has been dubbed vorticity, and this term therefore re ects the fact that the curl of velocity denotes the (local) intensity of rotation in the ow. 4. 3: The vorticity for a rigid rotation. 4 The second source of vorticity shear In addition to rigid rotation, shear is another cause of vorticity. In order to see this we consider a uid in which the ow is only in the x-direction and where the ow depends on the y-coordinate only: vy = vz = 0, vx = f (y).

This is due to the fact that two electric charges of equal sign repel each other, while two masses of equal sign (mass being positive) attract each other. 17) would be positive, masses would repel each other and structures such as planets, the solar system and stellar systems would not exist. 3) that electric eld lines start at positive charges and end at negative charges. By analogy we expect that gravitational eld lines end at the (positive) masses that generate the eld. However, where do the gravitational eld lines start?
