• Del is a vector operator

The collection of partial derivative operators

is commonly called the del operator.

The collection of partial derivative operators

• Aa a vector A can be multiply

• by a scalar ‘a’ aA

• by another vectorBB, via the dot product

• A.B

• by another vectorBB, via the cross product

• AxB

• Similarly Del Operator can operate in 3 ways:

• Operate on a scalar function “f”

For a fix dl, at θ=0,

For a unit change in dl, at θ=0,

The gradient is a vector operation which operates on a scalar function to produce a vector whose magnitude is the maximum rate of change of the function at the point of the gradient and which is pointed in the direction of that maximum rate of change.

The divergence of a vector field

in rectangular coordinates is defined as the scalar product of the del operator and the function

The divergence is a scalar quantity. We can’t take divergence of a scalar field. a The divergence theorem is an important mathematical tool in electricity and magnetism.

The divergence of vector V is a measure of how much the vector V spreads out i.e. diverges from the point in question.

The divergence of F at a given point P is the outward flux per unit volume as the volume shrinks about P.

The divergence of a vector field can be viewed as the limit of the field’s source strength per unit volume i.e. it is positive at a source point in the field, negative at a sink point, or zero where there is neither source or sink.

• There are three ways the operator can act: per unit volume as the volume shrinks about P.

• On a scalar function T

• 2. On a vector function V, via the dot product

• (the divergence)

• 3. On a vector function V, via the cross product :

• (the curl)

The Curl per unit volume as the volume shrinks about P.

The curl of a vector function is the vector product of the del operator with a vector function:

where i,j,k are unit vectors in the x, y, z directions. It can also be expressed in determinant form:

Physical Significance of Curl of vector per unit volume as the volume shrinks about P.

The curl of vector V is a measure of how much the vector V “curls around” the point in question. Curl is also called circular rotation.

If ,V is called as irrotational vector.

Divergence or Gauss’ Theorem

The divergence theorem states that the total outward flux of a vector field F through the closed surface S is the same as the volume integral of the divergence of F.

Closed surface S, volume V, outward pointing normal

Conversion of volume integral to surface integral and vice verse.

Stokes’ Theorem per unit volume as the volume shrinks about P.

Stokes’s theorem states that the circulation of a vector field F around a closed path L is equal to the surface integral of the curl of F over the open surface S bounded by L

Oriented boundary L

Conversion of surface integral to line integral and vice verse.

EXAMPLE 1 per unit volume as the volume shrinks about P. : Use the Divergence theorem to find the outward flux of F = (y - x) i + (x - y) j + (y – x)across the boundary of the cube bounded by the planes x = ± 1, y = ± 1, and z = ± 1.

SOLUTION: Let M = y - x, N = z - y, and P = y – x
