Magnetic Flux Lines and Earth
Name: Jerry G.
in the electromagnetic field that surrounds earth, there
are flux lines running from top to bottom. do these lines move over the
surface of the earth, or are they in a stationary position with relation
to a fixed object on the face of the earth?
Those flux lines actually extend quite a distance above the earths surface.
(The northern and southern lights fall along them for example) And they are
constantly shifting. Think of them like the surface of a wave filled pool,
