Course description and aims

This 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 said 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

In this course, students solve given problems and submit a report via OCW-i. Problems will be given once every two weeks.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)

As specified in the lecture class.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

As specified in the lecture class.

Assessment criteria and methods

Learning achievement is evaluated by student's class performance, reports, and attendance.

Related courses

  • LAS.P103 : Fundamentals of Electromagnetism 1
  • LAS.P104 : Fundamentals of Electromagnetism 2

Prerequisites (i.e., required knowledge, skills, courses, etc.)

No prerequisites. We strongly recommend to take the corresponding Fundamentals of Electromagnetism 1 and 2.

Other

Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes. We will use OCW-i to distribute problems and collect your report. Please don't miss the deadline.
