Circuits and Magnetism, complicated electric circuits - Electricity, Magnetism, Optics and Quantum Mechanics - Fundamentals of Physics - Ramamurti Shankar - Lecture 8 of 25 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Advanced Physics

Description: After a description of more complicated electric circuits, the basic ideas underlying magnetism are discussed and the relationship between electrical charges and magnetic fields is explored. Magnetism is caused and experienced only by moving charges. The Lorentz force on a charge is described and used to deduce the force on a current carrying wire. The cyclotron and velocity selector are described.
