Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The aim of the course is to provide basic knowledge on electric and magnetic fields. The course completion will provide students with the ability to understand relationships between distribution of sources, i.e. electric charges, electric currents, magnetic dipoles, and quantities characterizing these fields. Students can use the knowledge obtained in this course in the study of subsequent professional courses in various study branches. They will gain an overview on fundamental principles of microscopic phenomena related to electrical and magnetic properties of materials. Laboratory practicals will provide students with basic experimental skills through verification of physical laws in laboratory.
Course contents:
Electric charge, Coulomb's law. Electric field vector. Potential energy of a charge in electric field, electric potential. Electric field of a dipole and electric bilayer. Dipole in electric field. Gauss's law, electric flux, applications of Gauss's law for calculation of the electric field. Metal and dielectric in electric field. Dielectric polarization, relative permittivity, electric susceptibility. Capacitance of an isolated conductor, capacitance of a capacitor. Energy of the system of electric charges. Energy density in electric field. Electric current, current density and the continuity equation. Ohm's law, electromotive force. Magnetic field, Lorentz's force, definition of the magnetic field, the Hall effect. The motion of charges in magnetic field. Force and torque on a current. Current loop as a magnetic dipole. Magnetic field produced by electric current, Biot-Savart's law, Ampere's law. Magnetic field in materials, angular momentum and magnetic moment of an electron: orbital and spin.
