Electromagnetic interactions play a central role in determining the structure of the natural world and are the c of most current and emergent technology, therefore a basic understanding of electricity and magnetism (E&M) is important. In E&M the student is quickly introduced to a world in which almost all of the quantities are invisible; they are either microscopic such as electrons or abstractions such as field, flux, and potential. Integral calculus becomes a central mathematical tool, and students are asked to apply it in unfamiliar ways, such as calculating the path integral or surface integral of a quantity expressed as a vector dot product. It is necessary for students to think and visualize in three dimensions.
- This course aims to give the fundamentals of Electricity and Magnetism by introducing the basic concepts and applications of vector calculus.
- It aims to attach quantitative meaning to the previously qualitatively studied laws in this topic.
