We use this information to create a better experience for all users. The author has also posted on his web site a set of solutions for every problem, and each of the problems is thoroughly worked out with clear explanations. They are geared specifically at reinforcing concepts. The final chapter shows how Maxwell's equations may be combined to produce the wave equation, the basis for the electromagnetic theory of light.

In this book, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, making it a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. Acknowledgments This book is the result of a conversation with the great Ohio State radio astronomer John Kraus, who taught me the value of plain explanations. This book is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. It will help you see the "forest through the trees". In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain-language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms.

In this book, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, making it a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. If you have taken or are taking an electromagnetism or vector calculus course, you may have run into the classic problem of not being able to see the forest through the trees. In this book, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, making it a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. The common thread running through most attempts to define the electric field is that fields and forces are closely related. In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms. It is THE standard by which other self-study books ought to be compared.

They alert us when OverDrive services are not working as expected. In this way, not only are the core concepts of Maxwell's equations made clear, but many concepts from vector calculus are also brought out in crystal clarity, I got much more out of this book than I did the often recommended "Div, Grad, Curl".

Having completed the book, I do want to point out that the beginning of chapter 5 A Students Guide to Maxwells Equations book Maxwell's Equations to the Wave Equation does include a summary of Maxwell's equations.

Other than that, this is a perfect book. Without these cookies, we won't know A Students Guide to Maxwells Equations book you have any performance-related issues that we may be able to address. My only suggestion to the author would be to include a table summarizing Maxwell's equations, and perhaps a table of some basic constants.

James Clerk Maxwell was especially keen on this way of thinking, and he was careful to point out that analogies are useful not because the quantities are alike but because of the corresponding relationships between quantities. This is a HUGE plus for anyone picking up this book for self-study.

We use this information to create a better experience for all users. Chapter five also has a nice summary of the del operator and its use in finding the gradient, divergence, and curl. Required Cookies These cookies allow you to explore OverDrive services and use our core features.

In that case, you should read the book, listen to the accompanying podcasts, and work through the examples and problems before taking a standardized test such as the Graduate Record Exam. The final chapter shows how Maxwell's equations may be combined to produce the wave equation, the basis for the electromagnetic theory of light.

This question has deep philosophical significance, but it is not easy to answer. This leaves room for in-depth explanations of the most relevant features, such as the difference between charge-based and induced electric fields, the physical meaning of divergence and curl, and the usefulness of both the integral and differential forms of each equation.

There are two basic types of problems that you can solve using this equation: 1 Given information about a distribution of electric charge, you can find the electric flux through a surface enclosing that charge.

Review: 'Professor Fleisch is a great scientific communicator. So all in all, there is really little one can fault in this book. This book is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. It's not that you need to be an expert in vector calculus; all the concepts are explained very well in the book and the actual calculus you need for solving the problems is minimal, but in my mind the book will work best for those with some exposure to vector calculus.

For example, they let us know which features and sections are most popular.

In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms. Although the writing is clear enough that one could probably get a lot even without having had a vector calculus class, ideally one would have had at least some minimal exposure to vector calculus.

If you were to place some positive charge anywhere inside the surface, the electric flux through the surface would be positive.Get FREE shipping on A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations by Daniel Fleisch, from galisend.com Gauss's law for electric fields, Gauss's law for magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and the Ampere-Maxwell law are four of the most influential equations in science.
