Lecture 1 8_25_10

ECE 473/ EE473 Lecture 1

Intro to Electromagnetic Fields and Waves

Syllabus and grading structure

Three parts of the class overview: Electricity, materials, magnetism/waves

Scalar and vector fields - review notation and basic examples

Coulomb's law - review and extension to more than two charges

Preview of Maxwell's equations in integral form. Remember Physics 299?

- Gauss's Law diagrams: what are the surface and volume integrals? Fields are related to sources (charges)
- Faraday's/Ampere's Laws: what are the path and surface integrals? Mixes electric/magnetic fields
- D, B, E, H, permittivity, and charge density are briefly defined (we will see this again)
