|These are the course notes (in PDF format) used
in Physics 8.02 Electricity and Magnetism at MIT. They represent
an in-depth exposition of the material typically covered in
a freshman E&M course, including references to the visualizations
on this website (click on the images marked as "Animations"
to view the associated visualization). The material is organized
by topic (module) and presented in the order in which each topic
is addressed in the course. These materials were developed at
MIT by Dr. Sen-ben Liao, Dr. Peter Dourmashkin, and Professor
John W. Belcher. ©2004 Sen-ben Liao, Peter Dourmashkin,
