    Goals

    The goal of this course is to introduce the fundamental concepts of of electromagnetic field theory. Especially, stationary fields of electrostatics and magnetostatics are covered. This course aims to visualize 3D fields and vector fields. The conecpts that’s been taught in circuit courses such as voltage, current, power, resistor, capacitor and inductor are scrutinized.

    Content

    Fundamental lwas, electric charge, Coulomb’s law, electrostatics in free space, electrostatic energy, surface charges and Dirac distribution, boundary conditions, Lorents force law, magnetostatics in free space, magnetic energy, magnetic dipoles and permanent magnets. Maxwell’s equations and self/mutual inductance.
