Electrostatics: electric field and potential. Electric currents and resistance, electric networks. Magnetic fields. Electromagnetic induction, alternating-current circuits. Maxwell's equations and electromagnetic waves. Electric and magnetic fields in matter.
The special principle of relativity. Lorentz transformations and the transformation of velocity. Relativistic momentum and energy. Relativistic electromagnetism.
When she/he has finished this subject the student shall be able to:
Formulate the fundamental laws of electromagnetism.
Be able to solve simple problems from electromagnetism using different mathematical methods.
Be able to explain the special principle of relativity and which consequences this has for mechanics and electromagnetism.
There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
