Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to work through section 86 of Landau and Lifgarbagez volume 2 (The Classical Theory of Fields).

Basically, I am unable to get equation (86.6) from equations (86.4) and (86.5). I've detailed my working/question in the attached jpg file. I would appreciate any inputs.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

Vivek
