PHYS 301-302. Electricity and Magnetism
Topics covered include vector analysis, selected topics in vector calculus, the electrostatic field of force, Gauss’ law and the application of these principles to the solution of problems involving various geometries is considered. The electrostatic field in dielectric media, boundary value problems in dielectric media and electrostatic energy and the application of energy concepts are studied. Electric current and circuit analysis are included. Other topics include the magnetic field of steady currents, electromagnetic induction, magnetic properties of matter, magnetic energy, slowly varying currents, Maxwell’s Equations and the applications of Maxwell’s Equations.
