(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This is not a hw problem, just a question

[tex]\nabla[/tex](A.B) = (B.[tex]\nabla[/tex]) A +(A.[tex]\nabla[/tex])B+Bx([tex]\nabla[/tex]xA)+Ax([tex]\nabla[/tex]xB)

A,B are vectors

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can't make sense of the first 2 terms on the right hand side - is (B.[tex]\nabla[/tex])

just div of B?

Also, how do I solve, [tex]\nabla[/tex](e^{-x}r^{-2}[tex]\widehat{r}[/tex])

Can I treat the unit vector [tex]\widehat{r}[/tex] as constant?
