I was reading vecctor analysis and got the mathematical formulae for gradient but could not understand its physical meaning.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the physical meaning of gradient of a scalar ? And of a vector .

Also, I wanted to know the physical meanings of Divergence and Curl .
