Gradient simply means gradual change in perticular direction.
Gradient of a function is the derivative of that function or rate of change of a function.
The term gradient typically refers to the derivative of vector functions.
If F(x) is single variable function, then gradient is
That gives change in function F w.r.t. X.
If F is multi variable function then Grad (F) has a component in each direction and has three derivatives.
Velocity Gradient is defined as dv/dx.
That represents the change in velocity in X direction.
