# Divergence facts for kids

In mathematics, **divergence** is a differential operator that associates a vector field with a scalar field. In a vector field, each point of the field is associated with a vector, in a scalar field each point of the field is associated with a scalar.

Divergence is used to formulate Maxwell's equations and the Continuity equation.
