PHY 212 Spring 2012 Assignment Sheet #9 Page 1 Assignment Sheet 9 PHY 212 Spring 2012 Week X: March 18-24 Lecture Topics and Text Readings: 1. Survey of magnetism: non-existence of magnetic charge (33.1). Origins of magnetic fields in electric currents (33.2). 2. The Law of Biot-Savart (33.3); the vector cross-product.
