1. Consider a rigid body rotating with angular velocity
ω about an axis through 0. Then the velocity at a
point x in the body is given by

v = ω×x.

Moreover from (5.11c)

[ ×v]i = εijk ∂jvk

= εijk ∂j εk mω xm

= (δi δjm−δimδj )∂j(ω xm)

ω δjm

= ωiδjj −δijωj

= 2ωi,

i.e.

×v = 2ω.

Hence the curl at a point gives twice the angular velocity; for a fluid curlv is related to twice the
local angular velocity.

The curl is a measure of the rotation of a vector field.

2. Let v be a vector field, and define the circulation, Γ, of v around a closed curve C to be

Γ =

C

v.dx.

(5.17)

Suppose that C is a rectangular curve in
the xy-plane with a vertex at x0, and with
sides of length δx and δy parallel to the x
and y co-ordinate axes respectively.

Then for small δx and δy and by repeated application of Taylor’s theorem

Similarly

(5.18b)

Let A= δxδy be the area enclosed by C, then from (5.18a) and (5.18b), and using (5.9b),

v.dx = z.curlv.

(5.19)

z.curlv can thus be interpreted as the circulation about z at x0 per unit area. Analogous results
hold for the other components of curlv.
