    It looks like they're using the chain rule, but why?

    because V is a function of r

    So why does that necessitate the use of the chain rule?

    It's been a couple of years since I took calculus, and I know I should know this, but it's not making sense to me.

    I keep thinking that I should just take the derivative of V and hold all else steady as constants, but that's partial differentiation.

    I'm just not sure how to reason this out.
