Learning Results:

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able: 

  • to describe the sources of static electric and magnetic fields andunderstand the physical significance of the pertinent quantities,
  • to compute the electric-field intensity, generated by point or distributed charges,
  • to understand the interaction between electric fields and conductors, 
  • to calculate the capacitance of different configurations and the resistance of conducting objects ,
  • to understand  the behavior of simple grounding elements,
  • to calculate the magnetic-field intensity due to known current distributions,
  • to calculate  the induced voltages on conductors and the applied forces on current-carrying wires..
