would the inverse square law exist in a 2d reality?

>> No.12805404

well a version of it would exist—field lines would expand out evenly from a source. but in 2D they spread out over a circle instead of a sphere, and the circumference of a circle is 2*pi*r as opposed to spreading out over a sphere (4*pi*r^2) so in 2D you get an inverse law instead of an inverse square law

yea thats what i mean, would just be an inverse law
