Axelboldt, please finish this. --Ed Poor

Thanks for the redirect, Derek. I guess I should just delete this page. Anyone else agree? --Ed Poor

It's probably better to move the other article here rather than delete this one since this one has a grammatically correct title. But there might be a lot of links to fix so I would just leave it as a redirect, so that no one else thinks that it's a missing article -- Derek Ross

Um, I didn't wait before deleting and moving. Let me know if my hasty actions caused a problem. --Ed Poor

Nah, that's okay. Just remember that some of us don't type that fast. You'll have to fix the links to the old page now though -- Derek Ross

I think I did that, too. This darn Dvorak keyboard lets me type over 70 WPM! By the way, shouldn't there be a magnetic field article rather than a redirect to Maxwell's Laws? --Ed Poor

I would recommend a separate article on magnetic fields to the extent that it contributes to the consumer's conceptual understanding of the material. Extrapolating solely from personal experience, I never found purely mathematical expositions to help with my understanding to the extent of improving PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS. IMHO, any bozo competent in algebra can stand at the whiteboard and crank out expansions of this vector derivative of that product till the cows come home, but that won't help me find the field of a bloody point charge near a bloody conducting plane. There must be some reason why this is so. <>
