Electricity and Magnetism

Electricity and Magnetism

Edward M. Purcell, David J. Morin


for fifty years, Edward M. Purcell's vintage textbook has brought scholars to the area of electrical energy and magnetism. The 3rd version has been cited to this point and is now in SI devices. It positive aspects thousands of latest examples, difficulties, and figures, and includes discussions of real-life purposes. The textbook covers the entire regular introductory issues, resembling electrostatics, magnetism, circuits, electromagnetic waves, and electrical and magnetic fields in topic. Taking a nontraditional procedure, magnetism is derived as a relativistic impact. Mathematical suggestions are brought in parallel with the physics themes to hand, making the motivations transparent. Macroscopic phenomena are derived conscientiously from the underlying microscopic physics. With labored examples, enormous quantities of illustrations, and approximately six hundred end-of-chapter difficulties and routines, this textbook is perfect for electrical energy and magnetism classes. options to the routines can be found for teachers at www.cambridge.org/Purcell-Morin.
