Visualization of electromagnetic fields using MATLAB
This project entails solving electromagnetic problems and explaining the basic concepts with the use of MATLAB. The aim is to provide several example problems that will help students in the introductory electromagnetics course visualize the abstract concepts associated with electrostatic, magnetostatic and electromagnetic fields. The first part of the project provides examples to explain vector operations and the use of vectors in three coordinate systems. The second part involves examples and problems dealing with the static electric and magnetic fields. Finally problems, explanations, and visuals are shown which will help students visualize the time varying fields and also help them in understanding the propagation of electromagnetic waves. The goal of this project is to provide the students studying introductory electromagnetics with a means of visualizing fields and help them understand the abstract mathematical concepts associated with this study.
