This module introduces transmission lines (wave propagation, lossless line input impedance, power flow), electrostatics (Maxwell’s equations, charge and current distributions, Coulomb's law and Gauss's law, electric potential, electric properties of materials, electric boundary conditions, capacitance, electrostatic potential energy), magnetostatics (Biot-Savart law and Ampère's law, vector magnetic potential, magnetic properties of materials, magnetic boundary conditions, inductance, magnetic energy), time-varying fields (Faraday's law, stationary loop in varying field, moving conductor in static field, moving conductor in varying field, displacement current, electromagnetic boundary conditions, charge-current continuity, electromagnetic potentials), plane-wave propagation (time harmonic fields, wave propagation in lossless media, polarisation, wave propagation in lossy media, power density), and wave reflection and transmission (normal incidence, Snell's law, oblique incidence).
