    Because the Divergence Theorem was just introduced and squeezed into the last few minutes of the last lecture, it is continued in this lesson with applications and a proof of the theorem. The explanation leads to the diffusion equation, which is a partial differential equation. The physical interpretation of the theorem and equation are explained also.
