## 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

Written test (120 min.)
