No, this isn't for homework. I'm trying to brush up on gradients for the Physics GRE. Let's say I have vector V.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What isV(gradient squared)V?

In english, if I multiply the vector to the gradient squared of the same vector, what is that? I'm thinking that it'd just be the gradient of V, but I can't seem to prove it.

Thanks!!!
