Episode 402: Fields, Field Lines and Field Strength
This learning episode, from the Institute of Physics, introduces the notion of a field of force and how it can be diagrammatically represented using field lines. The actual strength of the field at a point in space is defined by the field strength. The activities include: • discussing fields and field lines • considering field strength and gravity • worked examples illustrating field strength • analysing data from the Apollo 11 space mission
