(note, I will probably refer to our course as 217) First course of electricity and magnetism n Goal? Understand Maxwells equations , there is an enormous amount of physics hidden in these 4 equations!!! 3 First course, yes But , at an advanced pace and mathematics (Integral AND Vector calculus) E = 1 B = 0 E = B t B = J +...
