An introduction to the fundamental laws of electricity and magnetism including electric charges and fields, Gauss ׳ law, electric potential difference, electric current and resistance, capacitance, magnetic fields, Ampere’s law, Biot-Savart law, inductance, Faraday’s law, and Maxwell’s equations are developed using the mathematical formalism of vector calculus. Applications to simple electrical circuits and simple electromagnetic devices using these fundamental laws are given. An introduction to physical optical phenomena including light as an electromagnetic wave, reflection, refraction, Snell’s law, and the phenomena of polarization, interference, and diffraction are also developed. Assessment The final grade for this course will comprise the following nine components: Laboratory Laboratory Exercises 25% Homework 5% Class Test 1&2 2x10% Midterm 20% Final Exam 30% Total 100% Note: No coursework marks (homework, labs, and tests) will be discarded.
