9780030134845: Elements of Electromagnetics

A good understanding of electromagnetics is vital to anyone working with electrical currents. Electromagnetics, electrostatics and magnetostatics are the foundation for microwaves, biomedical imaging and circuit design. Understanding this foundation well is the basis for a successful career in electronics-related fields. Sadiku's Elements of Electromagnetics is designed for the introductory course in electromagnetics for electrical and computer engineering undergraduates. Taking a vectors-first approach, sadiku explains electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields and waves, as well as applications like transmission lines, wave guides and antennas. it provides a balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors. The text is oriented to student learning. Thoroughly worked-out examples followed by practice exercises in every chapter show students how to use the theory, and how to confirm that they understand it. Numerical methods, including MATLAB programming, and a rigorous understanding of vectro analysis are included in the text so students can analyse situations they encounter in real life and industry. Essential formulas are boxed, and students are encouraged to derive other formulas rather than memorising excessively. it encorporates many helpful pedagogical features including chapter introductions and summaries, and multiple-choice review questions. It motivates student learnign with more than 100 illustrative examples and over 400 figures. This book is accompanied by an Instructor's Solutions Manual and PowerPoint slides of all the figures, for adopters only.

Product Description:

Thoroughly updated and revised, this third edition of Sadiku's Elements of Electromagnetics is designed for the standard sophomore/junior level electromagnetics course taught in departments of electrical engineering. It takes a two-semester approach to fundamental concepts and applications in electromagnetics beginning with vecotr analysis-which is then applied throughout the text. A balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields prepares students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors. Mathematical theorems are treated separately from physical concepts. Students, therefore, do not need to review any more mathematics than their level of proficiency requires. Sadiku is well-known for his excellent pedagogy, and this edition refines his approach even further. Student-oriented pedagogy comprises: chapter introductions showing how the forthcoming material relates to the previous chapter, summaries, boxed formulas, and multiple choice review questions with answers allowing students to gauge their comprehension. Many new problems have been added throughout the text, as well as a new chapter on "Modern Topics" covering microwaves, electromagnetic interference and compatability, and optical fibers. This book is appropriate for sophomore/junior level students in electrical engineering. It will also be accompanied by a Solutions Manual, available free to adopters of the main text.


"In switching to Sadiku's book, the improvement on understanding how vectors work is substantial, approximately a 30-35% increase in scores. If you're forced into a one-semester 3-hour course, you're not going to get a better book than this."--Dennis McCaughey, George Mason University

"The new textbook is an excellent book. It provides clear presentations to the mathematical formulas, physics insight, and practical applications."--Fan Yang, The University of Mississippi

"It has a more refreshing approach to connecting theory to practical examples."--Kasra Daneshvar, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

"Sadiku's book seems more 'reader friendly' in terms of the layouts and printing qualities. . . . This book is doing a very good job on problems/solutions. The problems are stated clearly and there are some new questions available."--Yan Zhang, University of Oklahoma

"The scope as well as the number of HW problems is good. It shows balance bet
