Course Outcomes: 

Electrostatics

Use Maxwell's equations to find electric and magnetic fields in symmetric arrangements of static charges and steady currents. Also find electric and magnetic fields by integrating over charge and current densities.

Energy and Motion of Charged Particles

Solve problems and answer conceptual questions involving electromagnetic energy (potential), forces, and the motion of charged particles and dipoles.

Electrical Circuits

Analyze simple direct current and alternating current circuits of resistors, inductors, capacitors and power supplies.

Electrodynamics

Use Maxwell's equations to solve problems and answer conceptual questions with changing electric and magnetic fields, including induction and electromagnetic radiation.
