|76-246 Electricity and Magnetism I F(3-2) [0.75]|
This course and the following one, 76-247, continue building the foundation in electricity and magnetism begun in the first year. These two courses are intended for students proceeding to advanced studies in the physical sciences. Topics include vector calculus, electric fields, potential, electric work and energy, Gauss's Law, Poisson's and Laplace's equations, capacitors, D.C. circuits, transients and dielectric materials. Some familiarity with computer programming is needed for the laboratory.
