Further develops the theory and analysis of electric and magnetic fields and circuits beyond the level of the prerequisite courses. Fundamental topics include electrostatics, magnetostatics, electromagnetic force, Faraday's and Lenz's Laws, capacitance and inductance. Circuit topics include transient RC and RL circuits, a.c. sources, impedance, phasors, a.c. network analysis, ferromagnetism and magnetic circuits, basic transformers, and linear motors and generators. Students are expected to have facility with using complex numbers but not vector calculus.

Restriction(s): Restricted to students in the Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Engineering Physics, and Geophysics programs.
Prerequisite(s): (MATH 123, MATH 110, or MATH 176), (MATH 124, MATH 116, or MATH 177), and (PHYS 155 or PHYS 115).
