Syllabus / Public content Section Term Instructor
EP 202 01 September 2016 Alexandre Koustov (primary instructor)


Further develops the theory and analysis of electric and magnetic fields and circuits beyond the level of the prerequisite courses. Fundamental topics include electrostatics, magnetostatics, electromagnetic force, Faraday's and Lenz's Laws, capacitance and inductance. Circuit topics include transient RC and RL circuits, a.c. sources, impedance, phasors, a.c. network analysis, ferromagnetism and magnetic circuits, basic transformers, and linear motors and generators. Students are expected to have facility with using complex numbers but not vector calculus.


Restricted to students in the Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Engineering Physics, and Geophysics programs.


(MATH 123 or MATH 110), (MATH 124 or MATH 116), and (PHYS 155 or PHYS 115).


Formerly EE 202. Students with credit for EE 201 or EE 202 or EP 229 will not receive credit for this course.
