For the vector valud function F in the image, the three components of the output vector at a point are functions of (x,y,z)the three coordinates of the point.But while calculating divergence, why is the rate of change of x component of the output along x direction alone is accounted(similarly for y and z components)?Why isnt the change of x component along y and z directions taken into account?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
