ENGINEERING ELECTROMAGNETICS
INTRODUCTION

## An electromagnetic field (also EMF or EM field) is a physical field produced by

electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field.
The electromagnetic field extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the
electromagnetic interaction. The field can be viewed as the combination of an electric field and a
magnetic field. The electric field is produced by stationary charges, and the magnetic field
by moving charges (currents); these two are often described as the sources of the field. It is
seen that distribution of a quantity in a space is defined by a field. Hence to quantify the field,
three dimensional representational plays an important role. Such a three dimensional
representation can be made easy by the use of vector analysis. A good knowledge of vector
analysis is an essential prerequisite for the understanding of engineering electromagnetics.

Direction of electric field: The direction of electric field is always directed away from
positive source charges and towards negative source charges

Direction of magnetic field: The direction of magnetic field line is directed from north
pole to south pole outside the magnet and from south pole to north pole inside the magnet.

## VECTORS AND SCALARS

We come into contact with many physical quantities in the natural world on a daily basis.
For example, things like time, mass, weight, force, and electric charge, are physical quantities
with which we are all familiar. We know that time passes and physical objects have mass. Things
have weight due to gravity. We exert forces when we open doors, walk along the street and kick
balls. We experience electric charge directly through static shocks in winter and through using
anything which runs on electricity.

There are many physical quantities in nature, and we can divide them up into two broad
groups called vectors and scalars

Scalar

Vector

## A vector is a physical quantity that has both a magnitude and a direction.

Ex: Force, Velocity, Displacement, Acceleration, Electric field intensity, Magnetic field
intensity.

Representation of a vector

B [Terminating point]

A [Starting point]

=R

## Where, = Vector = Direction

R= It is the distance between the starting point (A) and terminating point (B) of a vector.

= Letter is used to indicate the unit vector and its suffix indicates the direction of the unit
vector. It indicates the direction of unit vector along AB direction.

Vector Multiplication

Let us discuss the multiplication of two or more vectors. The knowledge of vector
multiplication allows us to transform the vectors from one coordinate system to other.

Consider two vectors and . There are two types of products existing depending upon the
result of the multiplication. These two types of product are,

## 1. Scalar or Dot product.

2. Vector or Cross product.

Dot product : also known as the "scalar product", an operation that takes two vectors and
returns a scalar quantity. The dot product of two vectors can be defined as the product of the
magnitudes of the two vectors and the cosine of the angle between the two vectors.

. = cos ɵ

## 1. The dot product obeys commutative law,

. = .
2. Dot product of unit vectors

Cross product : also known as the "vector product", an operation that takes two vectors and
returns a vector quantity. The cross product of two vectors can be defined as the product of the
magnitudes of the two vectors and the sine of the angle between the two vectors and has a
direction perpendicular to the plane containing the two vectors and .

X = sin ɵ

## The coordinate systems

To describe a vector accurately and to express a vector interms of its components, it is necessary
to have some directions. Such directions are represented interms of various coordinate systems.
There are various coordinate systems available in mathematics, out of which three coordinate
systems are discussed in this notes, which are

## 1. Cartesian or Rectangular coordinate system.

2. Cylindrical coordinate system.
3. Spherical coordinate system.

## Cartesian or Rectangular coordinate system

Cartesian or Rectangular coordinate system has three coordinate axes represented as x, y and z
which are mutually at right angles to each other. These axes intersect at a common point called
origin of the system.

## dsz = Differential vector surface area normal to z direction = dx dy az

dv = Differential volume = dx dy dz

## Position and Distance vectors

A (x1,y1,z1)

=Position vector of A = x1 y1 z1

= Position vector of B = x2 y2 z2

## - = (x2 - x1) + (y2 - y1) (z2 - z1)

Example

1. Obtain the unit vector in the direction from the origin towards the point P (3,-3,-2).

2. Two points A(2,2,1) and B(3,-4,2) are given in the Cartesian system. Obtain the
vector from A to B and a unit vector directed from A to B.
=2 +2 + =3 -4 +2

=R

= - = (3 – 2) + (-4 - 2) (2 - 1) = -6 +

= = 6.16 = R

## = = = 0.1622 - 0.9733 + 0.1622

It can be cross checked that magnitude of this unit vector is unity i.e

=1
