Vector Fields (3 Parts)

Synopsis
Part 1: Working largely in two dimensions the concept that the rate of change of a scalar field is a vector is demonstrated. Shows a pictorial treatment, but the mathematical expression for the gradient.
Part 2: A pictorial treatment of the ways a vector field can change leads to the introduction of the two rates of change, the divergence and the curl.
Part 3: A pictorial introduction to the vector theorems of Gauss and Stokes.
