Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The value of electric potential(∅) is known at every node in a 3d finite element mesh. The relation between electric current density(i) and electric potential(∅) is i=k.∇∅, I am writing a code in c, I want to know how to find the gradient of electric potential(∇∅) at every node so as to get current density(i). Please help.
