This classic 1953 text for advanced undergraduates has been used by generations of physics majors. Requiring only some background in general physics and calculus, it offers in-depth coverage of electricity and magnetism and features problems at the end of each chapter.
Starting with an introductory chapter on electrostatics, the treatment advances to the electrostatic field of free charges; dielectric theory; electrostatic energy, force, and capacitance; electric current; and direct-current circuits. Subsequent topics include steady-state magnetism, electromagnetic induction, magnetic properties of matter, transient currents, analysis of alternating-current circuits, Maxwell's equations, and electromagnetic waves.
