What Are We Going to Learn? A Road Map A Road Map Electric charge Electric force on other electric charges Electric field , and electric potential Moving electric charges : current Electronic circuit components: batteries, resistors, capacitors Electric currents Magnetic field Magnetic force on moving charges Time-varying magnetic field Electric Field More circuit components: inductors. Electromagnetic waves light waves Geometrical Optics (light rays). Physical optics (light waves) Electric Current: Electric Current: A Source of Magnetic Field A Source of Magnetic Field I B Wire with current INTO page B Observation: an electric current creates a magnetic field Simple experiment: hold a current- carrying wire near a compass needle! Yet Another Right Hand Rule! Yet Another Right Hand Rule! Point your thumb along the direction of the current in a straight wire The magnetic field created by the current consists of circular loops directed along your curled fingers....
