Hey so probably a really simple question, but I'm stumped. How do you simplify:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ν∇⋅(ρν), where

νis a vector

∇ is the "del operator"

⋅ indicates a dot product

ρ is a constant.

I want to say to do the dyadic product of v and ∇, but then you would get (v_x)*(d/dx) + .... which would be meaningless, so I'm thinking you do the dot product first, but I can't find an order of operations for algebra involving tensors of any order (except zero order of course).

Thanks in advance.
