What are fields ? i.e Electromagnetic and Gravitational Fields..
I understand that particles are discreet forms of energy with certain values depending on what one you are looking at. But i do not really understand what fields are. I have been looking on the internet but i can not find anything that breaks it down into a way i can understand.
I know that the Electromagnetic field is pervade throughout space but i do not understand the mechanisms of how sunlight actually travels to us for example.
So i was hoping some people on this board could break it down and explain in laymans terms to me what a field is please.
Far away is close at hand in images of elsewhere...
