In this lesson, you will learn about topological considerations and an introduction to Maxwell's equations. The lesson explains what curl says about force fields and the interpretation of curl of a force field as the torque per unit moment of inertia. The lesson also discusses how electric and magnetic fields behave and how they are caused by electric charges and their motions. The lesson concludes with a brief overview of two of Maxwell's equations, Gauss-Coulomb Law and Faraday's Law, and their applications.
Learn about some topological applications of this course as well as an introduction to Maxwell's equations.
