Hello newbie here to matlab workings. currently taking a course in Transport phenomena and additionally a course in matlab just to see if I can help with visual representation. I am trying to work out how to map a vector field
given v(x,y,z) Evaluate ∇*v, ∇v and ∇*vv.
a) vx=by , vy=0, vz=0
I can do this by hand, just having problem with putting it into code. I am aware of the function quiver() but not sure how to use it properly.
Can someone help evaluate any of the above.
Thank you in advance

From my understanding, you are trying to plot a vector field but not able to grasp the crux of your question. You can refer to the documentation for computing divergence, curl and gradiant through the embedded links.
Further you can check the documentation for "quiver" here and also check relevant examples for the same there.
