And anyone who is interested in that would greatly benefit from a training that includes a rigorous training in physics as it’s being taught here. Physics is a really solid framework on

When I expose material to an external magnetic field, then we learned last time that the field inside that material is modified. And we expressed that in terms of an equation, that the field inside the material is kappa of M, which is called the relative permeability, times the external field, and I will refer
