Electromagnetism sets a new standard in physics education. Throughout the book, the theory is illustrated with real-life applications in modern technology. It also includes detailed work examples and step-by-step explanations to help readers develop their problem-solving strategies and skills and consolidate their understanding. In addition to a meticulous development of thse traditional, analytical mathematical approaches, readers are also introduced to a range of techniques required for solving problems using computers. Electromagnetism provides an ideal preparation for readers who plan advanced studies in electrodynamics as well as those moving into industry or engineering .

The 4-momentum of P is defined by p" = mrf (12.32) where m is the rest mass.
The rest mass is a Lorentz scalar.15 The 4-momentum is a 4- vector because rf-
is a 4- vector and m a scalar. Energy and Momentum The temporal component of
12.7 □ THE ENERGY-MOMENTUM FLUX TENSOR We will study one final
theoretical development, relating to energy and momentum of the
electromagnetic field. The covariant form of the electromagnetic theory is ideal for
analyzing energy ...
All of our considerations of field energy and momentum in this section start from
tensor equations, so the conclusions are consistent with Einstein's postulate of
relativity. To verify that (12.1 15) does satisfy the continuity equation (12.1 12), we
