PHY 3080U – Electricity and Magnetism II


PHY 3080U is a second course in electromagnetism. It continues to build a foundation in electricity and magnetism with discussions of electromotive force, electric currents and the continuity equation, motional electromotive force, electromagnetic induction and Faraday’s law, the induced electric field, and energy in magnetic fields. Electrodynamics before and after Maxwell is presented along with further discussions of conservation laws, and the continuity equation. The course introduces Poynting’s theorem, waves in one dimension, sinusoidal waves, boundary conditions, reflection and transmission and electromagnetic waves in a vacuum, and guided waves.
