ElectromagnetismElectromagnetism 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 most basic example of a vector is the position vector x of a point P in space,
with respect to a chosen origin. In this book the symbol x is used to denote a
position in space, or a position vector. Another position in the same system might
be ...
(2.65) Spherical Coordinates Spherical polar coordinates are u\ = r, ui = 9, and
m3 = cp, as defined in Fig. 2.16. The formulas for differential operators in
spherical coordinates are recorded in Table 2.4. Again, it is important to know the
position ...
For convenience set up a coordinate system with the z axis in the direction of
motion, so vo = link; and let the origin be the position of q at t = 0. Then the
trajectory is xq(t) — votk. The distance between q at the observation time / and
the ...
