Important notes on this chapter: McGill – ECE – ECSE 351 Electromagnetic Fields – Prof. M. Popovic 9 We will cover only the following sections: 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 9 Related problems: 2, 4, 5, 6, 13, 16 9 We will not go through detailed derivations but want to get a general idea about Poisson’s and Laplace’s equations

WHEN do we use these equations? McGill – ECE – ECSE 351 Electromagnetic Fields – Prof. M. Popovic 9 Poisson’s and Laplace’s equations help us find potential fields inside regions bounded by known potentials or charge densities . 9 Then, from the potentials determined through these equations, one can find other quantities (field quantities, capacitance)
