Electricity, Magnetism, and LightA very comprehensive introduction to electricity, magnetism and optics ranging from the interesting and useful history of the science, to connections with current realworld phenomena in science, engineering and biology, to common sense advice and insight on the intuitive understanding of electrical and magnetic phenomena. This is a fun book to read, heavy on relevance, with practical examples, such as sections on motors and generators, as well as `takehome experiments' to bring home the key concepts. Slightly more advanced than standard freshman texts for calculusbased engineering physics courses with the mathematics worked out clearly and concisely. Helpful diagrams accompany the discussion. The emphasis is on intuitive physics, graphical visualization, and mathematical implementation.
