I am trying to derive Smoluchowski equation using Fokker Planck equation. I am following the book ''Non Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics'' by Robert Zwanzig. I am attaching a screenshot of a few pages of the book.

I am having issues with going from Equation 2.51 to 2.52. Can anyone please help with this, i.e. give a step by step solution?
