Graded on attempted effort. • Exams (50%): 2 per Semester. Exam scores historically increase over the semester – Exam 1: Chapters 4 and 5 – Exam 2: Chapters 6 and 7 – Exam 3: Chapters 8 and 9 • Final Comprehensive Exam (30%): Includes material from Chapters 410 8/11/2010 3 • It was James Clark Maxwell that put all of this together and reduced electromagnetic field theory to 4 simple equations. It was only through this clarification that the discovery of electromagnetic waves were discovered and the theory of light was developed. • The equations Maxwell is credited with to completely describe any electromagnetic field (either statically or dynamically) are written as: Maxwell’s Time Dependent Equations Differential Form Integral Form Remarks Gauss’s Law Nonexistence of the Magnetic Monopole Faraday’s Law Ampere’s Circuit Law t D J H t B E B D v ∂ ∂ + = × ∇ ∂ ∂ − = × ∇ = ⋅ ∇ = ⋅ ∇ ρ = ⋅ ∫ S d B S S d t D J l d H S L ⋅ ∂ ∂ + = ⋅ ∫ ∫ ∫ ∫ ⋅ ∂ ∂ − = ⋅ S L S d B t l d E ∫ ∫ = ⋅ dv S d D v S ρ ECE 307: Electricity and Magnetism Chapters 13: Review of Mathematical Essentials • Chapter 1: Vector Analysis – Scalars and Vectors – Unit Vector – Vector Addition and Subtraction – Position and Distance Vectors – Vector Multiplication – Components of a Vector • Chapter 2: Coordinate Systems and Transformations – Cartesian Coordinates...
