### Geometrical Representation

Let $F$ be a scalar field acting over $R$.

The **gradient** of $F$ at a point $A$ in $R$ is defined as:

- $\grad F = \dfrac {\partial F} {\partial n} \mathbf {\hat n}$

where:

- $\mathbf {\hat n}$ denotes the unit normal to the equal surface $S$ of $F$ at $A$
- $n$ is the magnitude of the normal vector to $S$ at $A$.
