I have been studying gradience; divergence and curl. I think i understand them in cartesian coordinate system; But i dont understand how do they get such complex stuffs out of nowhere in calculating divergence in spherical and cylindrical coordinate system. Any helps; links or suggestion referring del operator in these coordinate system would be appreciable.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
