The Maxwell equations are a set of four partial differential equations that describe the spatial and temporal behavior of electric and magnetic fields. The sources of time-independent electric and magnetic fields are the time-independent electric charge density and the steady current density respectively. The study of electric and magnetic phenomena that do not vary in
In the present post I will consider the problem of calculating the electric field due to a point charge surrounded by a conductor which has the form of a thick spherical shell
I will start with some conventional problems which are relatively easy, and after that, I will consider more advanced problems. I will show you how to solve some problems that seem to be challenging.
The concepts of electric dipole, potential of dipole, pure and physical dipoles are explained.
