        Lecture Details

        For more information about Professor Shankars book based on the lectures from this course, Fundamentals of Physics Mechanics, Relativity, and Thermodynamics, visit httpbit.ly1jFIqNu. Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201) The physical meaning of the components of the wave equation and their applications are discussed. The power carried by the wave is derived. The fact that, unlike Newtons laws, Maxwells equations are already consistent with relativity is discussed. The existence of magnetism is deduced from a thought experiment using relativity. 0000 - Chapter 1. Recap—Solving Maxwells Equations 1818 - Chapter 2.
