APPH12-JYZRDI

Which of the following statements regarding gravitational, electric and magnetic fields is false?

A

In physics, fields are models used to explain gravitational, electric and magnetic forces.

B

Gravitational, electric and magnetic fields are vector fields which have both magnitude and direction.

C

Gravitational, electric and magnetic fields surrounding the source of the field spread out radially and their magnitudes are inversely proportional to the distance from the source.

D

A vector field created by multiple sources can be calculated using vector addition by combining the fields created by the individual sources.
