ECSE 351 ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS LEARNING OUTCOMES –WEEK 2 Page 1 of 1 WEEK #2 -LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of the lectures this week you will: 1) Be able to explain what volume, surface, and line electric current densities are. 2) Be able to apply flux integration to find the net current passing through a specified area. 3) Be able to distinguish between the three basic types of EM force fields. 4) Be able to recall and explain the Lorentz force law. 5) Be able to illustrate how the Lorentz force law can be used to measure electric and magnetic fields. 6) Identify the four Maxwell integral relations for free space. 7) Explain why these (Maxwell integral relations for free space) are not practical unless there is sufficient symmetry and static sources.

Unformatted text preview: 8) Qualitatively interpret Gauss’s integral law for electric fields in free space. 9) Explain what symmetry conditions must apply to the static charge distributions in order for Gauss’s integral law for free space E fields to be practically useful. 10) Define what a Gaussian surface is. 11) Recognize that linear superposition applies to E-fields in free space. 12) Explain what the basic types of electric charge densities are ( q , ± v , s , and l ) and why charge density functions are useful in macroscopic EM theory. 13) Apply Gauss’s law to the basic symmetric, static charge distributions: a. Point b. Spherical c. Circular cylindrical d. Planar...
