Students will be assigned problems on the following:
• Vector calculus, curvilinear coordinates, Dirac Delta Function.
• Electrostatics. Coulomb's Law. Continuous Charge Distributions. Divergence and Curl of Electrostatic Fields. Field Lines, Flux, and Gauss's Law. Electric Potential. Poisson's Equation and Laplace's Equation. The Potential of a Localized Charge Distribution. Work and Energy in Electrostatics. Conductors. Induced Charges. Surface Charge and the Force on a Conductor.
• Special Techniques. The Method of Images. Separation of Variables.
• Electric Fields in Matter. Polarization. Dielectrics. The Electric Displacement. Linear Dielectrics.
• Magnetostatics. The Lorentz Force Law. The Biot-Savart Law. The Divergence and Curl of B. Applications of Ampere's Law. Magnetic Vector Potential.
• Magnetic Fields in Matter. Magnetization. Diamagnets, Paramagnets, Ferromagnets. The Auxiliary Field H. Magnetic Susceptibility and Permeability.
• Introduction to Electrodynamics. Electromotive Force. Electromagnetic Induction. Faraday's Law. Energy in Magnetic Fields. Maxwell's Equations.
