Expert Answer:

Pressure gradient: The change in pressure measured across a given distance is called a "pressure gradient"
 
Velocity gradient: The difference in velocity between adjacent layers of the fluid is known as a velocity gradient and is given by v/x, where v is the velocity difference and x is the distance between the layers.

Energy gradient: Any change in energy over time or space.
 
Potential gradient: potential gradient is the local rate of change of the potential with respect to displacement.
