Module Leader:Tamás Álmos Vámi
This module is concerned with the electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation that
pervade the world around us. In this module we will cover the basic principles, including the
electric field and potential, Coulomb’s law, Gauss’s law, currents, the magnetic field, the Lorentz force, Faraday’s law, or Lenz’s law, and we will finish with electromagnetic waves and an introduction to modern physics. One aim of this module is also to prepare students for interviews at UK universities like Cambridge and Oxford since the interview questions in Physics/NaturalSciences and Engineering are frequently drawn from mechanics and electromagnetism.
