Question PlotVectorField
Posted:

Hello mathgroup ! I am having problems with PlotVectorField, when trying to plot a simple field like the electric field of a point charge.
f[x_,y_]:={x,y}/(x^2+y^2)^(3/2)
When I set the option PlotPoints>8 , I get the plot, but for any value of PlotPoints > 8, the computer crashes completely. (The default value of PlotPoints is 15 !) I am running Mma. 2.2 under Windows 95 on a Pentium 100, 16 Mb Ram.
Any suggestions, please?
Thanks in advance.
