Takes a vector field as input and produces a scalar field.
🔗
Mnemonic: it gives out the amount of fluid that is going in or out of a given volume per unit of time.
🔗
Therefore, if you take a cubic volume:
  • the input has to be the 6 flows across each face, therefore 3 derivatives
  • the output is the variation of the quantity of fluid, and therefore a scalar
