Designed primarily as a textbook for the undergraduate students of Physics, this well-organized text covers all the major topics on Electricity and Magnetism and tries to provide a clear understanding of the fundamentals of the subject.
The book begins with a discussion on vector calculus and explains the concepts of divergence and curl as they are applied to electricity and magnetism. Then it goes on to describe Coulomb’s law of electrostatic forces, Gauss’ theorem for electrostatics, and methods of images. The text also explains the electrical properties of matter, magnetic field, Maxwell’s equations and their relevance to the electromagnetic character of light, and magnetic properties of matter. Finally, it shows the role of relativity in electricity and magnetism so that students can appreciate the relevance of relativity in understanding electromagnetic phenomena.
