I have a problem in the Griffith textbook (Introduction to Electrodynamics), Question 1.21, where it asks what is the meaning of the vector (A.∇)B, my simplistic approach would be to calculate the divergence of A which should be a scalar and multiply it out by Bx,By,Bz) to compute the x component of the expression. However in the solution manual (available by searching Introduction to Electrodynamics Solutions and clicking on the Scribd link) it seems to be the other way around.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I just don't understand why this is, can someone clarify please?
