F2050/02: Mon 17. 2. to Fri 15. 5. Mon 16:00–17:50 F2,02012,*M. Čermák* **Prerequisites**- Basic knowledge of vector calculus, differential and integral calculus is assumed.
**Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
**fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with**- Physics (programme PřF, B-FY)

**Course objectives**- This lecture is basic course of Electricity and Magnetism for first year students. At the end of this course, the student obtains the knowledge of basic laws of electricity and magnetism, he will be able to calculate the electric strength and magnetic induction for electric and magnetic fields and the their action on charges. He obtains the basic knowledge of mutual action of electric and magnetic fields with matter. Furthermore he will be able to solve the problems from electric circuit theory.
**Learning outcomes**- The student will be able:

- to solve the problems in the field of electric and magnetic fields;

- to the problems in the field of electric circuits. **Syllabus**- Electric charge. Intensity and potential of electric field. Gauss's law. Poisson's equation. Electric fields around conductors. Capacitors and capacitance. Dielectrics. Polarizability tensor. Electrostatic boundary problem. Electrical conductivity and Ohm's law. Kirchhof's laws and solution of simple electric circuit. Band models of solid state. Conductivity of solid state. Electrolysis. Conductivity of gases. Emission of electrons. Definition of magnetic field. Lorentz force. Amper law. Biot-Savart law. Magnetization. Vector of magnetic polarization. Magnetic properties of material. Magnetic boundary problem. Magnetic circuits. Elements of electrical circuit. Resonant circuits. Oscillations in RLC circuit. Transformers. Summary of Maxwell's equations. Electromagnetic waves.
