Description

This course is reserved for people who have never had an electricity and magnetism course, or who have never had an advanced course on vector calculus. Anyone can use it just needs a HighSchool Diploma level, this is a free course with 34 minutes videos.

Before any electricity and magnetism course we need mathematical tools like :

• Vector calculus
• Coordinate system
• Relation between cartesienne and cylindrical coordinates
• Differential calculus
• Vector operators

In this course we present all this concept for beginners

Our method is detailed the calculation from A to Z .

We start with defintion of a vector and the difference with a vector and scalar, after that we see a sample example, we will see representation of a vector, the magnitude of a vector, addition of vectors and finally vector multiplication.

Who is the target audience?
• Everybody who loves physics
• People who study electricity and magnetism for the first time
