    Course Highlights

    Electromagnetism has fascinated philosophers, mathematicians, physicists, engineers, experimenters and theorists for well over two millennia. This course asks fundamental questions like Why is the electric charge in nature quantized? and Why can't we find an isolated magnetic north or south pole? The web site includes problem setshints for problem setsquizzes with solutions, and practice quizzes.

    Course Description

    Parallel to 8.02: Physics II, but more advanced mathematically. Some knowledge of vector calculus assumed. Maxwell's equations, in both differential and integral form. Electrostatic and magnetic vector potential. Properties of dielectrics and magnetic materials. In addition to the theoretical subject matter, several experiments in electricity and magnetism are performed by the students in the laboratory.
