This is an introductory course on electricity and magnetism. The features of this course are as follows:
1. All phenomena of electricity and magnetism, as well as light, will be explained in a unified manner using Maxwell's equations
as a starting point. 2. Since this is an introductory course, the integral form of Maxwell's equations will be mainly used. 3. Several experimental demonstrations will also be given during the lectures.
Purpose of class
The purpose of this lecture is to understand physical phenomena of electricity, magnetism, and light in a unified manner based
on the Maxwell equations.
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.
