9780126194555: Electricity, Magnetism, and Light

A very comprehensive introduction to electricity, magnetism and optics ranging from the interesting and useful history of the science, to connections with current real-world phenomena in science, engineering and biology, to common sense advice and insight on the intuitive understanding of electrical and magnetic phenomena. This is a fun book to read, heavy on relevance, with practical examples, such as sections on motors and generators, as well as `take-home experiments' to bring home the key concepts.

Slightly more advanced than standard freshman texts for calculus-based engineering physics courses with the mathematics worked out clearly and concisely. Helpful diagrams accompany the discussion. The emphasis is on intuitive physics, graphical visualization, and mathematical implementation.

  • Electricity, Magnetism, and Light is an engaging introductory treatment of electromagnetism and optics for second semester physics and engineering majors.
  • Focuses on conceptual understanding, with an emphasis on relevance and historical development.
  • Mathematics is specific and avoids unnecessary technical development.
  • Emphasis on physical concepts, analyzing the electromagnetic aspects of many everyday phenomena, and guiding readers carefully through mathematical derivations.
  • Provides a wealth of interesting information, from the history of the science of electricity and magnetism, to connections with real world phenomena in science, engineering, and biology, to common sense advice and insight on the intuitive understanding of electrical and magnetic phenomena

About the Author:

Dr. Wayne M. Saslow
Texas A&M University

Review:

"The topics that you expect to be here are here, and in addition you will find many features that will be a pleasant surprise. I strongly recommend this text for the introductory second-semester calculus-based physics course..."
John L. Hubisz, Column Editor, North Carolina State University

"There is a wealth of interesting and useful information, from the history of the science of electricity and magnetism, to connections with real world phenomena in science, engineering, and biology, to common sense advice and insight on the intuitive understanding of electrical and magnetic phenomena."
Carl Patton, Professor of Physics, Colorado State University

"The emphasis on the relationship between equations (mathematics) and physics is very strong. The style of writing is informal and invites the reader to stop and think. The illustrations anticipate students' questions and add to the clarity of the text's explanations."
Prof. Mike Solokoff, U. Cincinatti

"[The text] is exceptionally well written. Its format is modern and user-friendly. It emphasizes on physical concepts, analyzes the electromagnetic aspects of many everyday phenomena, and guides the readers carefully through mathematical derivations. Saslow's book will be a welcome addition both as a text book and as a reference book in the area of electromagnetism."
Khondar Karim, Illinois State University
