Unformatted text preview: forms ? 6. What does the word “flux” mean in Latin? Water flow 7. In water, how does the flux into a closed surface compare to the flux out? Flux out is always zero. 8. What is vortex flow? Any motion with closed streamlines. Mass of air has special kind of motion- circulation, which leads to a vortex. 9. How do magnetic and electric fields differ? Magnetic field’s circulate but never converge to a point. Electric fields radiate from point charges but never circulate....
