This is an introductory course of Electromagnetism. The characteristic of this course is that we start from Maxwell equations
from the beginning and explain all phenomena of electricity and magnetism based on the equations. However, in order for the
course to be introductory, we take much time for the study of stationary cases. Experimental demonstrations will also be given
during the lecture.
Purpose of class
The purpose of this lecture is to understand physical phenomena of electricity, magnetism, and light in a unified theory of
Goals and objectives
Understand the notion of electromagnetic field both from qualitative and quantitative points of view.
Understand Maxwell equations and master how to use them.
Understand the force acting on a charged particle in electromagnetic field.
