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. Learn the way to apply laws of a magnetic field, Gauss law, Biot-Savart’s law and Ampére’s law, and to calculate magnetic fields.
Class 8 same as the 7th round same as the 7th round
