Content of the video
  1. ⏲ [00:14] Applications of the Maxwell equations
  2. ⏲ [02:08] Electric field vector
  3. ⏲ [05:12] Magnetic field vector
  4. ⏲ [10:15] Divergence integral theorem - this mathematical theorem combines the volume integral of the divergence of a vector field with the surface integral of this vector field.
  5. ⏲ [10:15] Divergence integral theorem - this mathematical theorem combines the volume integral of the divergence of a vector field with the surface integral of this vector field.
  6. ⏲ [17:50] Curl integral theorem - this mathematical theorem combines the surface integral of the curl of a vector field with the line integral of this vector field.
  7. ⏲ [23:58] The FIRST Maxwell’s equation - states that the charges are sources and sinks of the electric field.
  8. ⏲ [27:46] The SECOND Maxwell’s equation - states that magnetic charges always occur as dipoles. There are no magnetic monopoles.
  9. ⏲ [30:23] The THIRD Maxwell’ equation (Faraday’s law of induction) - states that a time-varying magnetic field generates an electric field and vice versa. This Maxwell equation contain also the Lenz’s rule.
  10. ⏲ [35:02] THE FOURTH Maxwell’s equation - states that the magnetic field can be generated by electric currents and time-varying electric fields (displacement current)
