On completion of this module, students should be able to:
Demostrate a systematic understanding of the principles of electricity and magnetism and apply them to macroscopic and microscopic systems.
Deploy the fundamental laws of electrostatics to understand the concepts of electric field and electric potential.
Deploy the fundamental laws of magnetism an dinduction to understand the concepts of magnetic field and magnetic flux.
Accurately analyse the response of series and parallel electrical circuits to alternating currents.
Evaluate the basic properties of dielectric, magnetic and electrically conducting materials.
Answer numerical problems on the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism.
This module will provide a systematic understanding of the macroscopic world of electricity and magnetism. The laws of Coulomb, Gauss, Biot-Savart, Ampere, Faraday and Lenz will be developed to establish a conceptual understandign of electric and magnetic fields, electric potential and magnetic induction. Starting with the geometry of regular capacitors and inductors the notion of the energy denstity of electric and magnetic fields will be introduced. The concepts of electric charge, current and potential, of direct and induced electromotive force, of ressisotrs, capacitors and inductors will be used to accurately explain the operation of electric circuits and of dielectric, conducting and magnetic materials.
