Consider P & Q to be 2 points on a surface ( x , y , z )=C. These points are chosen so that Q is a distance r d from P. Then moving from P to Q, The change in ( x , y , z )=C is given by, d φ = φ .d r = 0 since the 2 points are on the same surface C. This shows that is perpendicular to r d . Since r d may be in any direction from P, as long as it stays on the surface =C, point Q being restricted to the surface but having arbitrary direction, is seen as normal to the surface =C. Example : P 3 P 2 > P 3 P 1 > P 2 P isobars; curves of const. press. pressure gradient Recall that the total or substantial derivative is: D( ) D t = ( ) t + u ( ) x + v ( ) y + w ( ) z = ( ) t + V .
