I was reading a paper and came across this equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F=μ_{magnetic}_{0}(M<dot>∇)H

Is this the correct expansion below? (I'm not too experienced with vectors operating on the gradient operator)

F=μ_{magnetic}_{0}[(M_{x}∂H/∂x)i + (M_{y}∂H/∂y)j + (M_{z}∂H/∂z)k]
