    Miscellaneous Definite Integrals

    I mean, differentiating the top and bottom before taking the limit. as in a taylor series?

    Miscellaneous Definite Integrals

    The teacher gave me a hint, use L'hopitals Rule, which isn't clear to be possible since i forgot to add in the limit

    Thank you. I was half awake when I wrote that. I just don't know how to get that ε out from the denominator, I cannot take the limit otherwise.

    Proving vector calculus identities using summation notation

    This is another problem I'm a bit stuck on with similar content Homework Statement F is a constant vector field. hence \nabla\cdot F = 0 this means there is a vector potential F = \nabla\times A also \nabla\times F = 0 this means there is a scalar potential F = \nabla ∅ verify ∅ = F...

    Proving vector calculus identities using summation notation

    well I'll assume thats close to right and move onto the next problem which seems to make sense Homework Statement \nabla\cdot \vec{r}= δii=3 Homework Equations ∂xi/∂xj=δij The Attempt at a Solution \nabla\cdot \vec{r}=\nabla_{i}r_{i} = ∂/∂xiri = ∂xi/∂xi = δii...

    Proving vector calculus identities using summation notation

    That makes sense! So you do it that way because you can't have x2 instead you do product rule = 2(∂ xl/∂xj) xl = δjlxl if l=j = 2xj

    Proving vector calculus identities using summation notation

    Still struggling with the concept. So I can use a kronecker delta to have the condition of index l being j... \frac{∂}{∂x}(δ_{jl}x_{l}x_{l})_{j} = ( δ_{jl}=1 if l=j else 0) \frac{∂}{∂x}x_{j}x_{j} = 2x_{j}

    Proving vector calculus identities using summation notation

    hmmm so \frac{∂}{∂x}(x_{l}x_{l})_{j} = \frac{∂}{∂x}(x_{l}^{2})_{j} = \frac{∂}{∂x}x^{2}_{l}δ_{jl} = if l=j δ_{jl}=1 else δ_{jl}=0 \frac{∂}{∂x}x^{2}_{j} = 2x_{j}

    Ok, sounds good. so 3. Attempt at solving (\nablar^{2})_{j}= \frac{∂r^{2}}{∂x_{j}}= \frac{∂}{∂x_{j}}(δ_{lm}x_{l}x_{m})= \frac{∂}{∂x_{j}}(x_{l}x_{l}) = \frac{∂}{∂x_{j}}(x^{2}) = 2x_{j}
