This book intends to provide both the fundamentals of Electromagnetics but also some practical applications of the concepts covered. Having taught electromagnetics for several years, the authors feel that many times the field of electromagnetics comes as “old” and often times students do not appreciate the concepts and their importance in everyday applications. The authors intend to accompany the EM concepts with life applications. Hence, students may see the direct impact of the knowledge they acquire through the study of the field of electromagnetics and better appreciate the field.


This OER textbook is an effort to provide not only the theory of electrostatics, magnetostatics, time variable electric and magnetic fields and electromagnetic waves, but also to provide solved problems with detail steps and explanations as well as methodology steps. It also provides specific applications from everyday life to let student relate the theory with common application.

The OER textbook will be updated often, so that it includes new material as well as to make any modifications that will help the student or reader to appreciate the material and learn easier from it.
