Re: what to call little "g"

The field concept is not difficult. Give them some simple examples.
I use the temperature at every point in the room. That's a scalar
field. Then graduate to a vector field; the velocity of water at
various points in a stream is a good example. The gravitational
field is my next example when I'm introducing the electric field.
