Fennie School of Applied and Engineering Physics firstname.lastname@example.org Teaching Assistants Igor Segota email@example.com - DIS 202 & DIS 203 Jolyon Bloomfield firstname.lastname@example.org DIS 201 Lab Assistant Chris Choi email@example.com 2 Phys 2217 / AEP 2170 Lecture 1 Cornell University School of Applied and Engineering Physics Lecture 1: Topics 2 n Intro to the course, Coulombs Law, Superposition, example: force on a test charge Q a distance z above the midpoint b/w two equal charges q n Readings : Purcell 1.1- 1.4; Griffiths 2.1.1-2.1.2 2 3 Phys 2217 / AEP 2170 Lecture 1 Cornell University School of Applied and Engineering Physics Lecture 1: Introduction to the course n What is 217? (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 +...
