Listen to your teachers when they tell you WHAT to do. But more importantly, think about it later and ask yourself WHY they told you to do it.

In the language of differential vector calculus Gauss’s law: ~ = ρ ∇·E 0 (1) Gauss’s law for magnetism: ~ =0 ∇·B (2) ~ ~ = − ∂B ∇×E ∂t (3) Maxwell-Faraday equation Ampere’s law, with Maxwell’s correction ~ = µ0 ∇×B ~ ~J + 0 ∂ E ∂t ! We shall now look at interpretations of these expressions by using their integral forms. (4)

Gauss’s law: enclosed charges ~ = ρ/0 : ∇·E Integrate over a closed volume: Z Z ~ (∇ · E)dV = V V ρ dV 0 Use a mathematical identity (Gauss’s theorem) I ~ = Qenclosed ~ · dS E 0 (5) (6) Relationship between electric field on a closed surface and the charge enclosed inside it The part in red: source of the electric field ~ Leads to Coulomb’s law if Q is a point charge at the centre of S, a sphere of radius r : Er · 4πr 2 = Q/0

Gauss’s law: no magnetic monopoles ~ =0: ∇·B Integrate over a closed volume: Z ~ (∇ · B)dV =0 (7) V Use a mathematical identity (Gauss’s theorem) I ~ =0 ~ · dS B (8) Relationship between magnetic field on a closed surface and the magnetic charge enclosed inside it The part in red: source of the magnetic field. Vanishing of the source ⇒ no magnetic monopoles
