Cursusdoelen
You will be able to use Maxwell's classical theory of electromagnetism to describe and evaluate electromagnetic fields and waves produced by electric charges, which are either stationary (producing static electric fields), moving at constant velocity (producing static magnetic fields).
 
Using force- and potential fields, you will be able to calculate forces acting on charges that are stationary or moving at constant velocity.
 
You will be able to use Maxwell's field theory to describe other physical phenomena, such as gravitational forces or heat flow.
 
With respect to field calculations, you will be able to:
  • calculate electric- and magnetic fields for highly symmetric charge- or current density distributions using integral rules (Gauss's- and Stokes's laws);
  • calculate these fields by means of summation (integration) over sources, which can be used if the location of the charges and/or currents is known;
You will have limited knowledge of electric fields inside linear, isotropic materials.
 
Inhoud
In a Problem Based Learning style you will solve and discuss successive problems with a small group of students to get insight first in electrostatics, followed by magnetostatics. With magnetostatics you are already able to understand the design of electromagnets, magnetic fields created by a constant current.
 
Fields: vector- and scalar fields, gradient, divergence, rotation, flux and circulation of vector fields, Theorems of Gauss and Stokes;
 
Electrostatics: electric field, Coulomb's Law, superposition of fields from charges and charge distributions, Gauss's Law, electrostatic potential, dipole, equations of Laplace and Poisson, dielectrics, electrostatic analogues;
 
Magnetostatics: magnetic field, Ampere's
