Electrodynamics-1 (eBook)

For Under Graduate Students
Type: e-book
Genre: Education & Language, Science & Technology
Language: English
Price: ₹100
(Immediate Access on Full Payment)
Available Formats: PDF


The very purpose of the book is to bridge the gap between the text books of the higher secondary level and the advanced level books on Electrodynamics. This book covers the topics required for a first course in Electrodynamics. The solutions of all the exercises are provided in the book itself. The book focuses on basic concepts of electromagnetic theory with stress given both on physical concepts and mathematical treatment. The language used in the book is quite lucid. A large number of questions are given at the end of every chapter for ascertaining the clarity of concepts.
