Electromagnetism sets a new standard in physics education. Throughout the book, the theory is illustrated with real-life applications in modern technology. It also includes detailed work examples and step-by-step explanations to help readers develop their problem-solving strategies and skills and consolidate their understanding. In addition to a meticulous development of thse traditional, analytical mathematical approaches, readers are also introduced to a range of techniques required for solving problems using computers. Electromagnetism provides an ideal preparation for readers who plan advanced studies in electrodynamics as well as those moving into industry or engineering .

Again, the potential V(x) must satisfy Laplace's equation in both regions z > 0 (
except at the position of q) and z < 0. We can construct V(x) by the method of
images. However, the image charges for a dielectric are more complicated than
At a pn-junction, i.e., the boundary between an n-type region and a p-type region,
the electrons and holes diffuse across the boundary into, respectively, the p-type
and n-type region. The reason a pn-junction makes a good diode, so that such ...
The region from P to Q on the table is not illuminated by light from the prism.
Determine the position of Q. [Answer: OQ = 3a/>/5] 13.5. Consider light traveling
from x = -co, incident normally on a plate of glass with thickness a. The plate is ...
