The objectives of this course are to tease out the laws of electromagnetism from our everyday experience by specific examples of how electromagnetic phenomena manifest themselves. We want to be able:

To describe, in words, the ways in which various concepts in electromagnetism come into play in particular situations;
To represent these electromagnetic phenomena and fields mathematically in those situations;
And to predict outcomes in other similar situations.
The overall goal is to use the scientific method to come to understand the enormous variety of electromagnetic phenomena in terms of a few relatively simple laws.

Parallel Wires
Consider two parallel current carrying wires. With the currents running in the same direction, the wires are

I1

I2

1. attracted (likes attract?) 2. repelled (likes repel?) 3. pushed in another direction 4. not pushed – no net force

Dipole in Field

μ

The coil above will:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. rotate clockwise, not move rotate countercw, not move move to the right, no rotation move to the left, no rotation move in another direction, without rotation 6. move and rotate 7. no net force so no rotation or motion

PRS17

Dipole in Field

The current carrying coil above will move 1. upwards 2. downwards 3. stay where it is because the total force is zero

Dipole in Field

The current-carrying coil above will move 1. upwards 2. downwards 3. stay where it is because the total force is zero

PRS17

Free dipoles attract because: 1. The force between dipoles is always attractive independent of orientation. 2. A dipole will always move towards stronger field, independent of orientation. 3. The torque on the dipole aligns it with the local field and the dipole will then move toward stronger field strength.
