Scalar and vector fields

We know that many physical quantities like temperature, electric or gravitational field etc. have different values at different points in space for example electric field of a point charge is large near the charge and it decreases as we go farther away from the charge. So we can say that electric field here is the physical quantity that varies from point to in space and it can be expressed as a continuous function of position of point in that region of space .

Physics books for CSIR-NET/JRF and GATE

This is the list of few books recommended for those preparing for net/jrf in physics . It is hard for a person to collect these many books so i would advise you to go through these books while doing your masters in physics and make yourself appropriate notes for further reference and study.
