Course Description

COURSE JUSTIFICATION

This course is designed to give students an understanding of the properties and applications of static electric and magnetic fields. The intent is to give the students the ability to solve practical problems involving fields, forces, and energy, and simple boundary value problems. In addition, the course develops the concepts of circuit theory from the fundamental field relationships, and discusses capacitance, resistance, and inductance from a fundamental point of view.

EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of the course students should be able to:

·         Solve mathematical Physics problems using vector calculus.

·         Discuss the fundamental physical concepts associated with static electric and magnetic fields

·         Explain  the fundamental physical foundations for resistance, capacitance, and inductance, and how to calculate these quantities

·         Discuss  relationships between field theory and circuit theory

·         Illustrate the practical relevance of electrostatic and magnetostatic concepts.
