Principles of Electromagnetics

Ron Schmitt

How does electromagnetic theory tie together such broad phenomena as electronics, radio waves, and light? Explaining this question in the context of electronics design is the main goal of this chapter. The basic philosophy is that by developing an understanding of the fundamental physics, you can develop an intuitive feel for how electromagnetic phenomena occur. Learning the physical foundations serves to build the confidence and skills to tackle real-world problems, whether you are an engineer, technician, or physicist. So, in the beginning of this chapter, we will review fundamentals of electrical engineering in the context of electromagnetics.

The many facets of electromagnetics are due ...
