Knowledge and understanding

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to explain how electric charge and electric current generate and are affected by electric and magnetic fields.
- be able to use cylindrical coordinates, spherical coordinates, the nabla operator, Stokes´ theorem and Divergence theorem.
- be able to use equations such as Coulomb's law, Biot-Savart law, the law of induction and Maxwell's equations.
- be able to explain concepts such as capacitance, inductance, induction, wave propagation and antenna.

Competences and skills

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to analyse an solve basic problems of electrostatics, magnetostatics, quasistationary and general electromagnetic field theory.
- be able to explain how given problems of electromagnetic field theory can be solved.

Judgement and approach

For a passing grade the student must

- understand that electromagnetic field theory is fundamental for all technique and all science that involves electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields.
- be able to describe the strength of and the possibilities of a mathematical model of the type that electromagnetic field theory is an example of.

Vector analysis, electrostatics, magnetostatics, induction and general time-dependence. Examples of what is treated in the course are divergence, curl, electric fields in vacuum and in materials, capacitors, system of conductors, the image method, Biot-Savart law, force, inductance, the law of induction, Maxwell’s equations, plane waves and antennas.
