Here, the Chain Rule states
We have, by calculation
Thus, we have
I'm not sure what you mean by , but for I calculated something that looked quite different from the answer given in the problem.
Hi guys I am having difficulty while revising..
Consider the function r=(x^2+y^2+z^2) and f=r^-1
Find Partial derivatives rx,ry,rz. I have done this part but having difficulty doing this part
Use chain rule to find fx,fy,fz and hence show that grad ∆f =(-r^-3)(r) where r=xi+yj+zk
