For example, on page , it says, "As it turns out, H is more useful quantity than D. Maybe some of you don't need any pencil and paper to read the book although I desperately needed them. Firstly, I wished that I would really understand the principles of batteries. Be the first to like this. They are known to have intimate relationships.
These days, I am studying physics again rereading old books that I had or reading new books. When I was an undergraduate student, I learned electrodynamics with the textbook, Foundations of Electromagnetic Theory by Reitz, Milford, and Christy. When I tried to reread it, I found out that I forgot most of the things that I learned and the style of the book is a little formal and boring.
So I searched reviews on electromagnetism textbooks at Amazon and I decided to read the book, Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. I was really satisfied with this book. As the author says in Preface, the style of the book is less formal than most of other books.
While reading the book, I felt like I attended his classes. He emphasizes what is not usually emphasized in other books. For example, on page 42, it says, " For another instance, on page , it says, "Some people regard these the Maxwell's four equations having expression with D and H as the "true" Maxwell's equations, but please understand that they are in no way more "general" than Eq.
There are a lot of examples and problems in the book. I've read most of the examples, but I solved only a few problems that seem to be interesting. Maybe some of you don't need any pencil and paper to read the book although I desperately needed them.
The author even jokes at some pages.
For example, on page 98, it says, "The electric field inside a conductor is zero. Because if there were any field, those free charges would move, and it wouldn't be electrostatics the title of the chapter any more. There are many results that are induced from long mathematical calculations. But since in many places the author explains their meaning before or after the calculation in an intuitive way, you may find no trouble even if you skip the whole mathematical steps.
If you need the part later, you can come back to that part at anytime. Just a glance of them would be enough for many readers, especially, like myself, who just want to know what electrodynamics is about. The book is concrete, lucid and thorough in its explanation as well.
For example, on page , it says, "As it turns out, H is more useful quantity than D. In the laboratory, you will frequently hear people talking about H more often even than B , but you will never hear anyone speak of D only E.
The reason is this: To build an electromagnet you run a certain free current through a coil. The current is the thing you read on the dial, and this determines H or at any rate, the line integral of H ; B depends on the specific materials you used and even, if iron is present, on the history of your magnet. On the other hand, if you want to set up an electric field, you do not plaster a known free charge on the plates of a parallel plate capacitor; rather, you connect them to a battery of known voltage.
It's the potential difference you read on your dial, and that determines E or rather, the line integral of E ; D depends on the details of the dielectric you're using. For example, on page 96, "Equations 2. The first is an integral over the charge distribution: For instance, in the case of spherical shell the charge is confined to the surface, whereas the electric field is everywhere outside its surface.
Where is the energy, then?
Is it stored in the field, as Eq. Firstly, I wished that I would really understand the principles of batteries.
For instance, how is it possible to sustain a constant voltage difference? View larger. Download instructor resources. Additional order info.
