The aim of this module is to develop a solid understanding of the principles of Electricity, Magnetism, and fundamental Electronics.
Electricity & Magnetism: magnetic effects of electric currents, magnetic fields, magnetic force on a current carrying conductor, motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field, The Biot-Savart Law, force between parallel conductors, Ampere's Law, field in a solenoid, magnetic flux, magnetism in matter, Faraday's Law, Lenz's Law and induction, transient circuits, resonance.
Electronics: pn junctions, diodes and photodiodes, transistors, amplifiers, introduction to digital electronics, gates, truth tables, flip-flops.
This module specifically addresses the following topics of the Core of Physics, as defined by Institute of Physics:
- DC and AC circuit analysis to complex impedance, transients and resonance
- Gauss, Faraday, Ampère, Lenz and Lorentz laws to the level of their vector expression
