Problem 6. In the hand out (also in the NRL Plasma Formulary), use the dyadic definition of a second rank tensor, Eq.(17), and its divergence, Eq.(18), to prove the tensor dyadic identities of Eqs. (19), (20), and (26). [For Eq.(26), note that I is the unit second rank tensor, which can be written as a 3-by-3 matix with ones on the diagonal and zeros off the diagonal.] Finally use the ordinary vector form of Gauss's Law, Eq.(28), to prove the tensor dyadic form of Gauss's Law, Eq.(29).
