This is an undergraduate textbook on the physics of electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetic fields and waves. It is written mainly with the physics student in mind, although it will also be of use to students of electrical and electronic engineering. The approach is concise but clear, and the authors have assumed that the reader will be familiar with the basic phenomena. The theory, however, is set out in a completely self-contained and coherent way and developed to the point where the reader can appreciate the beauty and coherence of the Maxwell equations. Throughout, the authors stress the relationships between microscopic structure of matter and the observed macroscopic electric and magnetic fields. The applications cover a wide range of topics, and each chapter ends with a set of problems with answers.

The final volume in a three-part series, Electricity and Magnetism provides a detailed exposition of classical electric and magnetic fields and analyses of linear electric circuits. The book applies the principles of classical mechanics to systematically reveal the laws governing observed electric and magnetic phenomena. The text culminates in Maxwell's Equations, which, although only four in number, can completely describe all physical aspects of electromagnetism. The specific topics covered in Electricity and Magnetism include: Electric force, field, and potential Gauss's Law for Electric Fields Capacitance and networks of capacitors Electric current Resistance and networks of resistors Kirchoff's Rules Steady state and time-dependent DC circuit dynamics Magnetic force and field Production of magnetic fields Ampère's Law Gauss's Law for Magnetic Fields Faraday's Law Induction and inductance AC-driven circuit dynamics and energetics Maxwell's Equations and their plane-wave vacuum solutions This text extends the rigorous calculus-based introduction to classical physics begun in Elements of Mechanics. It may be studied independently of the second volume, Properties of Materials. With more than four hundred and fifty problems included, it can serve as a primary textbook in an introductory physics course, as a student supplement, or as an exam review for graduate or professional studies.

New Formulation by Introduction of Superconductivity

Author: Teruo Matsushita

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 4431545263

Category: Science

The author introduces the concept that superconductivity can establish a perfect formalism of electricity and magnetism. The correspondence of electric materials that exhibit perfect electrostatic shielding (E=0) in the static condition and superconductors that show perfect diamagnetism (B=0) is given to help readers understand the relationship between electricity and magnetism. Another helpful aspect with the introduction of the superconductivity feature perfect diamagnetism is that the correspondence in the development of the expression of magnetic energy and electric energy is clearly shown. Additionally, the basic mathematical operation and proofs are shown in an appendix, and there is full use of examples and exercises in each chapter with thorough answers.

For 40 years Edward M. Purcell's classic textbook has introduced students to the wonders of electricity and magnetism. With profound physical insight, Purcell covers all the standard introductory topics, such as electrostatics, magnetism, circuits, electromagnetic waves, and electric and magnetic fields in matter. Taking a non-traditional approach, the textbook focuses on fundamental questions from different frames of reference. Mathematical concepts are introduced in parallel with the physics topics at hand, making the motivations clear. Macroscopic phenomena are derived rigorously from microscopic phenomena. With hundreds of illustrations and over 300 end-of-chapter problems, this textbook is widely considered the best undergraduate textbook on electricity and magnetism ever written. An accompanying solutions manual for instructors can be found at www.cambridge.org/9781107013605.
