Definitely related to the divergence theorem (we're working on it):

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm a bit confused about multiplying a scalar fieldfinto those integrals on the RHS, and I'm not sure if they can be taken out or not. If they can be, I evaluated the RHS out to be 0 (zero), which doesn't make sense with my evaluation of the LHS, which is justgrad fdotted intoF.

On the other hand, if it CAN'T be taken out of the integral, I'm at a loss as of how this relates to the divergence theorem..

I'm not sure what I'm missing here :( Help would be very much appreciated!
