The important adjustments that i've got made in getting ready this revised version of the ebook are the subsequent. (i) Carefuily chosen labored and unworked examples were further to 6 of the chapters. those examples were taken from classification and measure exam papers set during this collage and i'm thankful to the college court docket for permission to exploit them. (ii) a few extra topic at the geometrieaI software of veetors has been integrated in bankruptcy 1. (iii) Chapters four and five were mixed into one bankruptcy, a few fabric has been rearranged and a few extra fabric further. (iv) The bankruptcy on int~gral theorems, now bankruptcy five, has been accelerated to incorporate an altemative evidence of Gauss's theorem, a treatmeot of Green's theorem and a extra prolonged discussioo of the class of vector fields. (v) the one significant switch made in what at the moment are Chapters 6 and seven is the deletioo of the dialogue of the DOW out of date pot funetioo. (vi) A small a part of bankruptcy eight on Maxwell's equations has been rewritten to provide a fuller account of using scalar and veetor potentials in eleetromagnetic concept, and the devices hired were replaced to the m.k.s. system.

For a point in the field external to the conductor there is no current density and curl H= O. 8. Divergence of a Vector Product. g. in calculating the flux of e~ergy in an electromagnetic field, it is THE OP ERA TOR ss V AND ITS US ES required to find the veetor produet of two veetors and then to work out the divergence of the result. We thus seek to find div (A x B). 18, we write V = A x B = (A"Bz - AzB,,) i + (AzBiZ - AzBz) j + (AzB" - A"BiZ) k = ViZi + V"J + Vzk. 6, we find that . õViZ õV" õVz = - +õy- +OZ õx = BiZ (OAz _ oy OA,,) OZ + B" (OAiZ _ OA,) ÕZ OX + B.
