Overview

Explore the concepts of electricity and magnetism in this series of courses, based on the second semester of introductory physics at MIT.

This series of modules discusses the idea of fields, specifically the electric and magnetic field. We explore several ways to calculate both the electric and magnetic field and also look at dipoles, forces, and simple circuits. We finish the course by combining all of Maxwell’s Equations to see how the speed of light and electromagnetic radiation comes about.

This series requires the use of multivariable calculus, although most of the math that is used will be reviewed. It is also best if you have previously completed our 8.01x Introductory Mechanics series.
