6 ELEN 3371 Electromagnetics Fall What’s this course about? We will study electric and magnetic fields. We review STATICS (zero or low frequency). and study DYNAMICS including Maxwell’s and Helmholtz equations, wave propagations, antennas, etc. The basic sources of electromagnetic (electrical) forces are stationary and moving electric charges, which exert forces on other stationary and moving electric charges. To study these forces, the concept of force fields has been devised. –When charges are stationary, the force field is an electric (electrostatic) field. –When charges are moving with a constant velocity, the force field is a magnetic (magnetostatic) field. –Accelerating charges produce electromagnetic fields.

7 ELEN 3371 Electromagnetics Fall Statics Definition: f = 0 [Hz] The electromagnetic field splits into two independent parts: Electrostatics: (q, E) Magnetostatics: (I, B) The static approximation is valid when the dimension of the circuit is small compared to the electrical wavelength. Static charge Constant current

8 ELEN 3371 Electromagnetics Fall Concepts of frequency/wavelength Example: a circuit working at 60 Hz. 0 = c / f - wavelength in vacuum Most circuits fall into the static-approximation category at 60 Hz. c =  10 8 m/s f = 60 Hz This gives: 0 =  10 6 m = 4,996.5 km

9 ELEN 3371 Electromagnetics Fall Some history Charge was discovered by the Ancient Greeks (about 600BC) who found that rubbing fur on various substances, such as amber, would build up an electric charge imbalance. The Greeks noted that the charged amber buttons could attract light objects such as hair. The Greeks also noted that if they rubbed the amber for long enough, they could even get a spark to jump. The word electricity derives from ηλεκτρον, the Greek word for amber.

10 ELEN 3371 Electromagnetics Fall Some history (cont) Two glass rods rubbed with silk and placed near one another were observed to repel each other. On the other hand, if a resin (plastic) rod rubbed with fur is placed near one of the glass rods, the force was attractive. Benjamin Franklin (mid 1700’s) is credited with naming electrical charge; that appearing on the glass rod was designated positive and that on the resin (plastic) rod, negative. Franklin was well known for his many quotations and his experiments with electricity

11 ELEN 3371 Electromagnetics Fall Folks contributed to the research on electricity Luigi Galvani (1737–1798), Alessandro Volta ( ), Michael Faraday (1791–1867), André-Marie Ampère (1775–1836), Georg Simon Ohm ( ). Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, Werner von Siemens, Alexander Graham Bell William Thomson (lord Kelvin) … Your picture here?
