Chapter 7 - Gravitational Fields
The first of the fields covered in the GCE A Levels is the gravitational field. This video introduces us to the idea of gravitational field lines and discusses some of the features of field theory.
We can study gravitational fields in space quantitatively using Newton’s Gravitational Laws. In the GCE A Levels, we must be able to compute the gravitational field strength at any point in space and this video will discuss this.
In the GCE A Levels, we need to know Newton’s Law of Gravitation, which describes the gravitational force between two masses. This video discusses this concept and how it relates seamlessly to gravitational field strength at a point.
