Course Contents
Electrostatic field:
Electric charge, Coulomb’s law, electric field, electric torque, Gauss’s law, electric potential, electrostatic energy, capacitance, dielectric materials.
Stationary electric current:
Electric current, Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws.
Magnetostatic field:
Lorentz force, magnetic torque, magnetic field, Biot-Savart law, Ampère’s law, Gauss’s law, magnetostatic energy, inductance, magnetic materials.
Electrodynamics and electromagnetics:

Study Goals
- To know the elementary phenomena of classical electrics and magnetics.
- To know the connected theory of these phenomena.
- To know how to correctly relate the phenomena to the theory, and vice versa.
- To be able to explain phenomena using the theory.
- To be able to solve simple problems using the theory.
- To be able to use elementary methods of mathematical physics.

The provided extent and level of the subjects are such that the obtained knowledge forms a non-specialistic basis for the subsequent academic education of an electrotechnical engineer.
Education Method
Lectures with demonstrations; tutorial lectures.
Assessment
1 exam, mark (halve point steps)
