# Gradient

- Gradient of a Function - The gradient of a scalar function comprises its partial derivatives and represents the direction of the steepest ascent. This page explains how to calculate and interpret the gradient.
- Gradient of a Scalar Field - The gradient of a scalar field points in the direction of the greatest rate of increase of the scalar field.
- Groundwater Table Gradient Calculation - The groundwater table gradient measures the change in groundwater level over a certain distance. This calculator helps in understanding the flow and movement of groundwater.
- Hydraulic Gradient Equation - The hydraulic gradient equation is used to calculate the slope of a hydraulic head over a defined distance. This calculator helps find the hydraulic gradient.
