By P.F. Kelly

The ultimate quantity in a three-part sequence, Electricity and Magnetism offers an in depth exposition of classical electrical and magnetic fields and analyses of linear electrical circuits. The ebook applies the rules of classical mechanics to systematically display the legislation governing saw electrical and magnetic phenomena. The textual content culminates in Maxwell's Equations, which, even though merely 4 in quantity, can thoroughly describe all actual points of electromagnetism.

The particular themes coated in Electricity and Magnetism include:

  • Electric strength, box, and potential
  • Gauss's legislations for electrical Fields
  • Capacitance and networks of capacitors
  • Electric present
  • Resistance and networks of resistors
  • Kirchoff's Rules
  • Steady nation and time-dependent DC circuit dynamics
  • Magnetic strength and field
  • Production of magnetic fields
  • Ampère's Law
  • Gauss's legislations 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 textual content extends the rigorous calculus-based creation to classical physics started in Elements of Mechanics. it can be studied independently of the second one quantity, Properties of Materials. With greater than 400 and fifty difficulties incorporated, it could function a main textbook in an introductory physics direction, as a pupil complement, or as an examination overview for graduate or specialist studies.

Cleverly rewriting the integrand, Iy = 1 2 y + L2 1 b2 + y 2 + L2 = dw dy L2 + b2 + y 2 , L2 + y 2 L2 + b2 and recognising that the complicated-looking fraction simplifies when expressed in terms of w, b2 y 2 L2 + b2 w2 = L2 + 2 L + b2 + y 2 4 L2 + y 2 L2 + b2 L + L2 b2 + y 2 L2 y 2 + b2 y 2 = = , L2 + b2 + y 2 L2 + b2 + y 2 gives rise to the following intermediate form: a a Iy dy = −a dy −a 1 1 dw = 2 dy L2 + b2 w2 L a dy −a dw 1 dy 1 + b w L 2 . Combining these intermediate results into the expression for Ez , retaining the y-parameterisation, and simplifying, yields a Ez = 2 k σ0 dy −a b dw 1 L dy 1 + b w L 2 .

This is a necessary condition for physical quantities associated with the rectangular plate. , L ≫ {a, b}, THEN the electric field should approximate that of a point source. L ≫ a, b Comparison with the expression just derived starts with the square-root factor in the denominator of the argument of the inverse tangent function: lim L≫a,b L2 + a2 + b2 → L + small corrections . Hence, the argument of the inverse tangent is well-approximated by L √ L2 ab ab ∼ 2, 2 2 L +a +b in this limit. Furthermore, for small θ, tan−1 (θ) ∼ θ, and thus, lim Ez → 4 k σ0 L≫a,b k σ0 (2 a)(2 b) ab k QTotal = = , L2 L2 L2 where the total charge is the [constant] charge per unit area, σ0 , integrated over the area, (2 a) × (2 b), of the plate.
