Different coordinate systems used in solving vector field problems. Coulomb's law- relation of electric field intensity with different charges, the electric flux density, Gauss' law and the divergence theorem. Relation between the electric field and the force exerted on charges, and energy expended in this motion. The potential gradient, and the dipole moment. The application of the previous laws to some materials – conductors- semiconductors- and dielectrics. Boundary conditions. Definition of susceptibility and permittivity. Laplace and Poisson equations in three coordinate systems, example of their solution. Relation of steady magnetic field, its curl, and Stoke's theorem. Maxwell' equations. Faraday' law.
