ECE106: Electricity and Magnetism

Electromagnetism is a branch of physics involving the study of the electromagnetic force governed by electromagnetic fields.

Why this course is important: E&M is critical to our understanding of the universe, and power our modern society. E&M is entirely behind how Motors work.

Common Mistakes

Don’t forget your directions at the end!! Because current density / magnetic field is a vector!!



Electrostatics is concerned with stationary charges.


Magnetostatics is concerned with moving charges, which create steady magnetic fields.

Electrostatics and Magnetostatics is combined with Lorentz’s Force Equation.
