### Course description and aims

The course offers exercises related to the contents of Fundamentals of Electromagnetism 1 and 2.
Students solve given problems and present their answers. This will allow them to understand electromagnetism and prepare them to solve more general problems in physics.

### Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to:
1) Find mathematical solutions to problems in electromagnetism expressed by equations and explain the physical meanings of the solutions.
2) Acquire methods and approaches to solve more general problems in physics.

### Keywords

Coulomb's law, Gauss's flux theorem, the Biot-Savart law, Gauss's law for magnetism, Ampére's law, Faraday's law of induction, the Maxwell-Ampére equation, Maxwell's equations

### Competencies that will be developed

 ✔ Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills

### Class flow

This course is conducted every two weeks alternately with Physics Experiment II. Students solve given problems and themselves explain their answers.

### Course schedule/Required learning

Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Calculate electric fields resulting from charges (a) on an infinite plane and (b) in a sphere, by using Coulomb’s law and Gauss law, etc. Learn the way to visualize and formulate electric fields coming out from electrical charges.
Class 2 same as the 1st round same as the 1st round
Class 3 charges induced in a conductor which is inserted in an electric filed, electric fields resulting from charges added in a sphere conductor, electric potential and electric fields of an electric dipole, capacitance of condensers, etc. Learn the way to apply Gauss law and calculate electric fields.
Class 4 same as the 3rd round same as the 3rd round
Class 5 Exercise partial differentiation, electric potential and electric fields of a point electric charge, magnetic fields around a current flowing in a line conductor, motion of a charge in a magnetic field, etc. Review the relation between electric potential and electric fields. Learn the way to visualize and formulate magnetic fields generated by moving electrical charges (a current).
Class 6 same as the 5th round same as the 5th round
Class 7 magnetic fields generated by line and circle currents, as well as a current sent along the axis of a cylinder conductor, etc. Review the units relevant to electric and magnetic fields.
