Help with Multivariable calculus.. Flux in Space?

note that i'll use ? as "del" or basically the thing infront of a gradient. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Del for more info

"Show that, if S is a closed surface bounding a region D, and if "" has continuous seocnd derivatives inside D, then

S ? ? ?n dS = D ? ? ? ([?^2] + |?|^2) dV

if I say that ? = F, or that is a potential for the gradient field F, and div(F) is the divergence of F, then prove:

S ? ? Fn dS = D ? ? ? ([div(F)] + |F|^2) dV

If you coud help me with this proof I would appreciate it!

Thanks.

Yeah, I posted this on another site and it didn't have the real del. I'll edit.

If a problem's been posted elsewhere, just post a link. In this case, a simple Google search finds two other websites with this problem. The first of the two is this pdf file (part B, problem 3(b)).

Thanks. I wasn't really sure of procedure, but that would make things much easier for me.

Can you help me with the actual proof?
