    Vector Calculus Operators

    Okay, I have an exam on vector calculus tomorrow, and theres is one simple thing I just can't find anything about in my notes.

    With the gradient, divergence and curl formulas, there are a couple of similar ones in my questions.

    I know (F . Del)f [ F = vector field, Del = operator f = scalar field]

    But could somebody please tell me how to find

    (F . Del)F

    ???

    Thank you

    (F . \nabla)F is a psuedo-vector expression. If F=<u,v> then (F . \nabla)F = <u u_x + v u_y, u v_x + v v_y>

    dearest rossleeds.
    It is indeed an interesting question you ask there and i believe i have a solution

    is a psuedo-vector expression. If then

    hope this helps
