Hey everyone,

So in my E&M class we've started to talk about magnetic vector potential. I understand mathematically how it relates to the magnetic field and charge density, but I'm still a bit unsure conceptually what it means. Is it similar to electric potential in the sense that it measures differences in...energy? Since it's a vector, the pathway you choose to get from a to b matters? A point in the right direction would be marvelous.

Thanks,

Ari
