1st Workshop on Classical Electromagnetism

There are just four basic forces known (presently) to physics. Namely, (If they are listed in the order of decreasing strength), Strong, Electromagnetic, Weak and Gravitational.

The brevity of this list may seem surprising. Where is friction? Where is the “normal” force that keeps things from falling

through the floor? Where are the chemical forces that bind molecules together? Where is the force of impact between two colliding billiard balls? The answer is that all these forces are electromagnetic. Indeed, it is scarcely an exaggeration to say that we live in an electromagnetic world— virtually every force we experience in everyday life, with the exception of gravity, is electromagnetic in origin.

In his Lectures on Physics, Richard Feynman asserts that “ten thousand years from now, there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell’s discovery of the laws of electrodynamics”. Whether this prediction is borne out or not, it is impossible to deny the significance of Maxwell’s achievement to the history, practice, and future of physics. That is why electrodynamics has a permanent place in the physics curriculum, along with classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics. Of these four, electrodynamics is often found the most challenging. One reason is surely the mathematical demands of vector calculus and partial differential equations. Another stumbling block is the non-algorithmic nature of electromagnetic problem-solving. There are many entry points to a typical electromagnetism problem, but it is rarely obvious which lead to a quick solution and which lead to frustrating complications.

Considering interest of many, Community of Physics is going to organize a five day workshop. The workshop will cover both electrostatics & magnetostatics and the sacred laws of electrodynamics: the Maxwell’s equations, including required mathematical demands. The workshop is designed keeping students of class 11 & 12 in mind, and anyone having courses relating electricity and magnetism will be benefited. The workshop is totally free for the audience.
