1. Purcell 6.59 (Scale-down solenoid)
We have two solenoids S1 and S2 of which S1 is a tenth-scale model of S2.
S2 has: L2 = 2 m, D2 = 1 m and is wound with copper wire d2 = 1 cm. When S2 is connected
to V2 = 120 V, it gene

Space-time coordinates.
The first step in learning the Special Theory of Relativity is to learn how to think and
visualize in 4 dimensions.
Example: Surface and volume integrals.

Find the surface area of a rectangle of sides A and B:
The differential area is dx ! dy , and the limits of integration are uncorrelated, so the
