## What is a field in space?

In physics, a field is a physical quantity, represented by a number or another tensor, that has a value for each point in space and time. Field theories, mathematical descriptions of how field values change in space and time, are ubiquitous in physics.

### What is field in quantum field theory?

In a quantum field theory, what we perceive as particles are excitations of the quantum field itself. In it, two fields exist: the electromagnetic field and the “electron field”. These two fields continuously interact with each other, energy and momentum are transferred, and excitations are created or destroyed.

**What is space in quantum physics?**

In mathematical physics, the concept of quantum spacetime is a generalization of the usual concept of spacetime in which some variables that ordinarily commute are assumed not to commute and form a different Lie algebra. As a result of this change some variables that are usually continuous may become discrete.

**What field is quantum physics?**

Quantum Field Theory (QFT) is the mathematical and conceptual framework for contemporary elementary particle physics. It is also a framework used in other areas of theoretical physics, such as condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics.

## What is a field in physics?

field, In physics, a region in which each point is affected by a force. Objects fall to the ground because they are affected by the force of earth’s gravitational field (see gravitation). See also electromagnetic field.

### What is field and its properties?

Properties of an Electric Field Field lines never intersect each other. They are perpendicular to the surface charge. The field is strong when the lines are close together, and it is weak when the field lines move apart from each other. The number of field lines is directly proportional to the magnitude of the charge.

**What is field physics?**

field, In physics, a region in which each point is affected by a force. Objects fall to the ground because they are affected by the force of earth’s gravitational field (see gravitation).

**Is space made of fields?**

Most physicists have concluded that the universe, all space, time, and matter, is made of fields. As far as we know these fields have no smallest, indivisible constituent. Another Greek, Democritus, however, suggested that matter was made of tiny, indivisible particles called atoms.

## What are under classical physics?

Classical physics involves classical mechanics (the study of the movement of fluids and particles), thermodynamics (the study of temperature and heat transfer), and electromagnetism (the study of electricity, magnets, and electromagnetic waves).

### What is quantum field theory in physics?

Quantum Field Theory. Quantum Field Theory (QFT) is the mathematical and conceptual framework for contemporary elementary particle physics. It is also a framework used in other areas of theoretical physics, such as condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics.

**What are the applications of classical field theory in physics?**

Classical field theories remain useful wherever quantum properties do not arise, and can be active areas of research. Elasticity of materials, fluid dynamics and Maxwell’s equations are cases in point. Some of the simplest physical fields are vector force fields.

**What is the most often studied field in physics?**

In modern physics, the most often studied fields are those that model the four fundamental forces which one day may lead to the Unified Field Theory . A convenient way of classifying a field (classical or quantum) is by the symmetries it possesses.

## What is the equivalent of a field in physics?

In this theory an equivalent representation of field is a field particle, for instance a boson. To Isaac Newton, his law of universal gravitation simply expressed the gravitational force that acted between any pair of massive objects.
