where A(x,y,z,t) is a continuously differentiable function.
Note that this relationship can be
applied to different physical principles, such as conservation of mass (in which case A =

See section 10.4. on page 215217.

The material derivative can be used to find the boundary condition for an object suspended in a
fluid.
This is a useful theorem for analysis of particle motions.
See problem 10.7. and 10.8.

Show that the permutation symbol is an isotropic tensor, i.e. the tensor components remain the
same under a permissible orthogonal transformation.
A permissible transformation refers to the
