21 Gravitational Fields

This page covers the gravitational fields section of the course.  Some people find this section very tricky. You must learn the formulae a and what each one means very carefully before you try and do the problems. They are so similar it gets a bit confusing. However, just learn each one carefully and make a definitions sheet. Then it will be clear!  Also potential energy and gravitational potential are not the same thing!
