Problem: What can you say about the field at point 1 compared with the field at point 2?a. The field at point 1 is zero, because point 1 is not on a field line.b. The field at point 2 is larger, because point 2 is on a field line.c. The field at point 1 is larger, because the field lines are closer together in that region.d. The field at point 1 is larger, because point 1 is not on a field line.
