The course offers exercises related to the contents of Fundamentals of Electromagnetism 1 and 2.
Students solve given problems and present their answers. This will allow them to understand electromagnetism and prepare them to solve more general problems in physics.
By completing this course, students will be able to:
1) Find mathematical solutions to problems in electromagnetism expressed by equations and explain the physical meanings of the solutions.
2) Acquire methods and approaches to solve more general problems in physics.
Coulomb's law, Gauss's flux theorem, the Biot-Savart law, Gauss's law for magnetism, Ampére's law, Faraday's law of induction, the Maxwell-Ampére equation, Maxwell's equations
