First consider an expanding spherically-symmetric ball of positive charge. This is not an implausible state of affairs. If the charges in the distribution are not held in place, their mutual repulsion leads to a spherically-symmetric expansion and a spherically-symmetric outward flow of current. Any spherically-symmetric distribution of current is magnetically silent â€“ that is, it produces no magnetic field. This is true both outside and inside the current distribution. We will now show tha

Attachment to places can be a resource within care relationships, especially where people have a shared history of attachment to places. An older couple may have experienced the ups and downs of moving between places together for much of their lives.

Vitamin B, often called the vitamin B complex, consists of a whole range of different compounds, some of which have similar functions and work together. However, unlike the families of compounds forming vitamins E and K, the B vitamins are sufficiently different from one another to be given individual names or numbers, and to be listed separately on many food labels. Except for vitamin B12, the body can only store limited amounts of B vitamins and because they are all water-soluble
