This undergraduate course is the first of a 2-part course which deals with the fundamental laws of static (non time-varying) electric and magnetic fields and leads naturally to dynamic (time varying) fields and to Maxwell's formulation of the laws of electricity and magnetism which underlie the operation of modern communication systems and the global information infrastructure.

This course is a continuation of PHY 204. Topics covered include: Capacitance and Dielectrics, Current and Resistance, Direct-Current Circuits, Magnetic Fields, Sources of Magnetic Fields, Faradays Law, Inductance, Alternating-Current Circuits, Electromagnetic Waves.
