potential V at the point P(2, -1, 2) in a rectangular(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

coordinate system is V (x, y, z) =x^2+4y^2+9z^2.

Find the direction that produces the maximum rate of change of V at P.

the max rate of change 37.094.

how to find direction that produces the maximum rate of change ??
