[tex]

\frac{d}{dt}\frac{\partial}{\partial \dot{q}} \frac{dF}{dt} = \frac{\partial}{\partial q} \frac{dF}{dt}

[/tex]

what's the theorem that says partial and ordinary derivatives are mixed?

That's, not, strictly speaking, a mathematics question. The equation you have is a specific physics or fluid dynamics formalism. It's not a matter of a "theorem", it is a matter of notation. And, again, it is physics notation, not mathematics.
