English

Summary

Introduction to electromagnetism.

Content

Electromagnetism
Electrostatics, electric field and potential. Stationary electrical currents.

magnetization of matter. Maxwell equations, electrical circuits with direct
currents (DC) or alternating currents (AC).

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

General physics I, II

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:
• Interpret important phenomena involving electromagnetic interactions
• Realize the beauty and internal consistency of Maxwell's equations
• Predict the consequences of Maxwell's equations in simple but important situations
• Choose to solve problems with static and time-dependent fields
• Manipulate differential operators (gradient, curl, divergence, laplacian)
• Contextualise conservation laws for physical quantities both in local and global form

Transversal skills

• Continue to work through difficulties or initial failure to find optimal solutions.

Teaching methods

Ex cathedra and exercises supervised in class

Assessment methods
