In this lesson on Fields in Non-Contact Forces, which is part of Unit 3 Area of Study 1 for VCE Physics, you will learn about:
- gravitation, magnetism and electricity using a field model
- gravitational, magnetic and electric fields, including directions and shapes of fields, attractive and repulsive fields
- the existence of dipoles and monopoles.
Gravitational Field Strength
This video defines the term gravitational fields and explains gravitational field strength.
The following video defines the term magnetic field.
Representing Magnetic Field Lines
These videos will take you through magnetic field lines, including sketching magnetic field lines due to a moving electric charge, electric currents and magnets.
Electric Field Lines Representation
The following video covers electric field line representation in various examples.
