1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm trying to figure out how to take grad(f(x(t)) where x(t) is a vector. Since it's part of a physics problem, it's assumed x(t) is in 3-dimensional space. 3. The attempt at a solution My guess is that grad(f(x(t)) = ((∂f/∂x)(∂x/∂x),(∂f/∂x)(∂x/∂y),(∂f/∂x)(∂x/∂z)) but I really am not sure about this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
