James Clerk Maxwell
(1831-1879)

The primary objective of this course is for you to develop a solid functional understanding and appreciation for the foundations of electromagnetism and its applications. .

Maxwell's unification of electricity and magnetism was a revolutionary development in Classical Physics. Course topics include: electric force, field, potential and current, capacitance, resistance, magnetism, induction, AC/DC circuits, and Maxwell's Equations along with their vacuum solutions.
After taking this course you will be able to;

  • determine the electric and potential fields produced by various charge distributions.
  • determine the magnetic field produced by various currents.
  • understand the circuit elements of resistance, capacitance and inductance.
  • analyze DC and AC circuits.
  • apply linear network theorems to electric circuits.
  • understand how electromagnetic waves propagate.
