how do we go from

to

also on the next step

∇' just means the gradient with respect to r', right?

Also, why do i have to use the dirac delta function? i thought it was only used to deal with discontinuities?

also when we say

the volume integral of a vector field just means we do the triple integral on each component of the vector field independently right?
