Does anyone know which formula is used or how to arrive at the righthand side of the equation below, which is the dot product of del and rho*a 2nd order tensor(V V).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

. represents dot product

and X a vector quantity

This problem is in connection with transforming cauchy's equation in terms of the material acceleration

del . (rho*V V) = {V*del . (rho*V) } + {rho*(V . del)*V}

Thanks
