Text Reading: Giancoli, Physics - Principles with Applications, Chapter 22: 1-7 (All)

Study Points

Key Equations

  • Displacement current: B   Δ l   =   μ 0 ( I   +   I D ) I D   =   Δ Q Δ t   = ϵ 0 Δ Φ E Δ t  
  • Ampère's law using Electric Flux: B   Δ l   =   μ 0 I   +   μ 0 ϵ 0 Δ Φ E Δ t
  • Speed of light, permeability and permissivity: c   =   1 μ 0 ϵ 0   =   2.99792458     10 8   m s
  • Energy carried by EM Wave: u   =   ϵ 0 E 2   =   B 2 μ 0   =   ϵ 0 μ 0   EB
  • Radiation Pressure P   =   F A   = 1 A   Δ p Δ t   = 1 A   Δ U c Δ t    = I avg c    [ Full   absorption ]   or   2 I avg c     [ Full   reflection ]  

Web Lecture
