Unformatted text preview: Spring 2009 Physics 351 Asim Gangopadhyaya Office Hours: 10:30-11:20 MWF. More by appointment. Office: Cudahy Science 310 Text: Introduction to Electrodynamics, David J. Griffith. Publisher Prentice Hall, Third edition. I also strongly recommend the following books by Schaum Series titled Electromagnetics and Vector Calculus. I do not expect you to learn just from these books. Consult any book you may find on the subject and also from internet. Prerequisites: Knowledge of material covered in General Physics I and II, Vector cal- culus (Calc III), Differential equation (Calc IV) and Mathematical Methods for Physics (PHYS 301/MATH 355). Objectives: 1. The primary objective of this course is to understand Electricity and Magnetism at a level higher than what you learned in PHYS 126. However, many of the problems will be from PHYS 126 and a very good understanding of the material covered in that course is essential. 2. Electricity and Magnetism and Mechanics make an extensive use of vector calculus. I expect you to acquire an understanding of practical uses of vector calculus through applications in E&M. 3. Electricity and Magnetism and Mechanics make an extensive use of orthogonal functions. I expect you to acquire an understanding of practical uses of these functions through applications in E&M....
