For courses in Electromagnetics offered in Electrical Engineering departments and Applied Physics.
Designed specifically for a one-semester EM course covering both statics and dynamics, the book uses a number of tools to facilitate understanding of EM concepts and to demonstrate their relevance to modern technology. “Technology Briefs” provide overviews of both fundamental and sophisticated technologies, including the basic operation of an electromagnet in magnetic recording, the invention of the laser, and how EM laws underlie the operation of many types of sensors, bar code readers,GPS,communication satellites, and X-Ray tomography, among others.A CD-ROM packed with video presentations and solved problems accompanies the text.
• Flexible organization – Organized to fit completely into a single-semester, 4-credit course; with some trimming as suggested in the syllabus table, it easily adapts for a 3- credit course.
• Introduction of electrostatics and magnetostatics (after short introductory chapters on vector analysis) before proceeding to the dynamic case involving waves, transmission lines and antennas, emphasizing foundational principles while demonstrating their utility and scope through carefully framed examples and exercises.
. Technology Briefs–two-page long, self-contained overview presentations of:
. Global Positioning System
. X-Ray Computed Tomography
. Resistive Sensors
. Capacitive Sensors
. Non-Contact Sensors
. Electromagnets And Reed Switches
. Magnetic Recording
. Inductive Sensors
. EMF Sensors
. Liquid Crystal Display
. Microwave Oven
. Bar Code Readers
. Communication Satellite
. Radar Sensors
• Interactive CD-ROM accompanying the book – Helps convey the workings of a dynamic phenomenon static tools like figures and illustrations; an excellent self-study resource.
– The text contains 104 exercises, each posing a question, followed by an abbreviated answer. If the student wishes to verify that the solution for a particular exercise is correct, it can be done by looking up the solution for that exercise through the CD-ROM menu entry called Exercises (labeled “E”).
– Interactive Modules (labeled “M”) are designed to help students work through the solution of a multistep problem in a step-by-step fashion. In some modules, video animations are used to demonstrate the dynamic nature of the solution.
– The CD contains 79 demonstration (labeled “D”) exercises that utilize spatial displays of field distributions or temporal plots of certain quantities to convey the dynamic nature of EM fields and the roles of key parameters. D
– Under the section entitled “Solved Problems (P),” the CD-ROM contains complete solutions for 86 problems. Half of these problems were selected from among the end-of-chapter problems appearing in the book, and are identified by the CD symbol next to the problem statement. The other 43 are extra problem examples; their problem statements and complete solutions are available in the CD-ROM.
