**Topics:** Course developing a basic understanding of the theory of electricity and magnetism

Students have to develop a basic understanding of the theory of electricity and magnetism. They have to be able to describe the following concepts: electric charge, electric force, electric dipoles, electric field, electric field lines, electric potential, energy stored in the electric field, magnetic force, magnetic dipoles, magnetic field, magnetic flux, magnetic fieldlines, induction, electromagnetic waves. Upon completing the course, the students should be able to do calculations with the following quantities: electric charge, electric force, electric dipoles, electric field, electric potential, energy stored in the electric field, magnetic force, magnetic dipoles, magnetic field, magnetic flux, induction, electromagnetic waves. In these calculations, they must be able to use the laws of Coulomb, Gauss, Biot-Savart, Ampere, Faraday, Lenz en Maxwell.
The course covers the following topics:
- Electric charge, force and field
- Gauss's law
- Electric potential
- Electrostatic energy and capacitors
- Electric current
- Magnetism, force and field
- Electromagnetic induction
- Maxwell's equations and Electromagnetic waves
