PHY381 - Electrostatics & Magnetism

This course develops an advanced treatise of stationary charged particles. Emphasis is placed on time-independent Maxwell's equations, specifically Gauss' Law, and the static relationship between electric and magnetic fields. Vector operations, such as the divergence and curl, are utilized in representing field lines, strength, and contours. Students will expound on their understanding of classical electrostatic properties, such as resistance and potential, on an atomic scale.
