ECSE 351 ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS LEARNING OUTCOMES –WEEK 3 Page 1 of 1 WEEK #3 -LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of the lectures this week you will: 1) Be able to explain the gross E -field strength variation for basic static charge symmetries such as spherical, line and planar symmetric static charge distributions. 2) Interpret Ampère’s integral law in free-space qualitatively. 3) Explain the relationship between the B -field and the two types of currents that can source it. 4) Explain the historical significance of the displacement-current term contribution of Maxwell. 5) Recognize the practical limitations of the full Ampère’s integral law for solving for

Volume J b. Surface J s c. Line i 9) Explain the nature (field components and their spatial variation) of magnetic fields produced by circular cylindrical (axisymmetric) static current distributions. 10) Apply Ampère’s law to the case of an infinitely long, thin, straight wire carrying a static current i ....
