10.1: Fields

Fields are used in almost every part of physics. In Physics 7C we will concentrate on the gravitationalelectric and magnetic fields. We have some experience dealing with gravity from Physics 7A and 7B, so we will gain our intuition on fields from concentrating on gravity. After discussing the gravitational field, we will not be able to do anything we could not before, but it should make discussing less familiar fields easier.
