### Electromagnetism I University of Tsukuba

#### Course Overview

This course introduces the classical theory of electromagnetism at an undergraduate level. It begins with the fundamental laws and relations governing electrostatic force, electric field and electric potential. These quantities are calculated based on a given system of charges or a given charge distribution. The course also continues with work and energy in electrostatics, electric fields in matter (the concepts of polarization and linear dielectrics), as well as electric fields due to polarized objects.

#### Learning Achievement

This course introduces the basic ideas of electromagnetism.
The course is a prerequisite for “Electromagnetism II”.

#### Competence

Related to 2. Understanding ability of physical phenomena.

#### Course prerequisites

Linear Algebra I and II, Calculus I and II.
