**I**want to visualize the concept of divergence of a vector field.I also have searched the web.Some says it is

1.

**the amount of flux per unit volume in a region around some point**

**2.Divergence of vector quantity indicates how much the vector spreads out from the certain point.(is a measure of how much a field comes together or flies apart.).**

3.The divergence of a vector field is the rate at which"density"exists in a given region of space.

3.The divergence of a vector field is the rate at which"density"exists in a given region of space.

**4.divergence measures the net flow of fluid out of (i.e. diverging from) a given point. If fluid is flowing instead into that point the divergence will be negative.**

I am confused with all these definition.Can someone give me a proper visualizable definition which also satisfies in some way all the above definition and descriptions?

*Thanks for your response.*
