Brief description
The module provides a basic understanding of the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism. It covers the background to and applications of Gauss' law in electrostatic and Ampere's law in magnetism, both in integral form, together with Faraday's law in electromagnetic induction. The final section of the course deals with current electricity, treating the alternating current behaviour of simple circuits.
