The following diagram shows two vectors making an angle with horizontal, C making an angle with horizontal. The sum of the vectors making an angle with horizontal.

As shown from the above diagram, the x component of vector are respectively. The sum of the components is. The vector addition of two vectors is which makes angle with the horizontal. The x component of is. Now multiply by both sides then ,. Now multiply by both sides then. If is the unit vector pointing out of page then. In the general let us consider that the vectors A , B , and C can be written in terms of their components along the x , y , and z directions.

Let i , j , and k be the unit vectors along the x , y , and z directions, respectively.

So the vectors can be written as. A x and A y are the components of A along the x and y axes, respectively. B x and B y are the components of B along the x and y axes, respectively. C x and C y are the components of C along the x and y axes, respectively.

Thirdly, I wished to understand the relationships between relativity and electrodynamics. They are known to have intimate relationships. In fact, the paper on special relativity by Einstein begins with some problems of electrodynamics.

For this purpose, it went beyond my expectations. It was extremely helpful. The book introduces relativity in the final chapter. In the first section, it begins with a question on electromagnetic induction; when a moving coil passes above a static magnet, a current by the magnetic force Lorenz force flows in the coil.

On the other hand, when a moving magnet passes above a static coil, a current by an electric force Faraday's law flows in the coil. In his paper on special relativity, Einstein asked. And from there, the book introduces the basics of special relativity; time dilation, length contraction, Lorentz transformations, four-vectors, relativistic energy and momentum, relativistic dynamics, tensors.

After that, the book sheds new light on classical electrodynamics from the point of view of relativity.

There, we learn that "we can calculate the magnetic force between a current-carrying wire and a moving charge without ever invoking the classical laws of magnetism only assuming classical laws of electrostatics and relativity.

In addition, we can understand how a point charge moving in uniform velocity can generate a magnetic field note that a moving charge itself is not a current. In the last section, the book formulates the Maxwell's four equations using tensor notations.

It is just a simple equation that can be written in one line. Even if you are already familiar with special relativity, I recommend that you read the chapter carefully. I don't think that you might have seen such kind of meticulous explanations about relativistic energy and momentum in other books as follows on page However, a closer inspection of Eqs.

It is just conceivable, therefore, that a massless particle could carry energy and momentum, provided it always travels at the speed of light.

Although Eqs. Personally, I would suggest this argument as a joke, were it not for the fact that at least one massless particle is known to exist in nature: Photons do travel at the speed of light, and they obey Eq. The title of the first chapter of the book is Vector Analysis. After the first chapter, readers are bound to begin to study electrostatics, electric potentials, electric fields in matter, and many more. The mathematics of the book is also the author's style, less formal and intuitive.

I think if the reader is a very logically rigorous person, he may feel uncomfortable with a few arguments. Among them, I want to comment on the point charge and Dirac delta function. Dirac delta function is a function which has the whole space as its domain, has its value 0 except 0 and infinity at 0, but has the definite value 1 when integrated on its domain.

For example. If we admit that in nature, there is nothing like point charge and there are only charges continuously distributed on strings, then we can avoid the problem of infinity and can accept that the delta function is just an approximation for the real picture. Then we see that the charge density of a point charge is a usual function that looks like the delta function only in the large scales for example, our scale. Likewise, we can accept that the electric field of a point charge does not have infinite value at the position of the point charge.

Instead, it has a finite value everywhere. So when we calculate electric fields of a point charge at points in space using Gauss's law, we can apply the divergence theorem which only deals with usual functions. I hope this argument can be helpful to people to understand Chapter 1 of the book without discomfort.

Paperback Verified Purchase. Chapters are different order, problems and figures different numbers and so on. Fine for reading, but won't work if you re supposed to buy this for a class that expects the hardcover correct version. Avoid the cheaper "international" version that incorrectly says it has the same content! Hardcover Verified Purchase.

Griffith's work in this book is utterly perfect. Part 0 is vector mathematics, which serves as a reference, and is explained repeatedly anyways throughout the book.. Part 1 is Electrostatics!

And part 2 is Magneto-statics! Both of these obey nearly same equations, and have the same solutions, and affect materials similarly in a linear fashion. So you learn electrostatics, and then you learn that magnetism is the same thing all over again. So the two parts are written almost exactly the same! Here's the force on a particle, now here's the field, now here's the potential, now heres some cool solutions, now here's how to include material effects.

Part 3 combines both in a logical fashion by considering simple cases and working on up to the holy grail equation of the force on one particle by another particle which is so obsurdly complicated nobody uses it. Later we learn Part 1 and Part 2 were the same because magnetism and electrostatics are really the same phenomena observed in different frames thanks to relativity. He derives relativistic lorentz transformations for electrostatics and magnetostatics and proovs that maxwells four equations are really just one matrix equation.

This books is the holy grail, and Griffiths is an incredibly clear, rigorous lecturer, always knowing when to add plain english and when to stick to the hard mathematics. There were many times I didn't understand something. Yet, thanks to the incredibly rigourous logic and progression of ideas, it was always so easy to work back down to the foundations and answer any question for yourself. I have a master's in mathematics but not much of background in science, so a lot of the book is a mystery and is left unread.

It did force me into quite a bit of googling! The math is great though, in particular chapter one.

It gave me an intuitive understanding of the formal mathematics I learned in college. Book has so far worked - it's as described by the seller. Keep in mind that this is for an international 4th edition, which is more or less identical to the normal 4th edition.

So rest assured buying this paperback version. Written in a way that helps you understand the material instead of making you feel like an imbecile. Lots of examples and the problems are peppered throughout the text instead of lumped up at the end.

And some at the end of each chapter as well. Need advanced skills in math to do the problems though. Up to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra at least. Excellent book, very well written and clear.

The examples are very enlightening and the whole thing is very easy to follow.

Would have been 5 stars if it were not for the fact that the first three chapters of the book detached from the spine within the first month. The book seldom left my desk in all that time, and the only stress I put on the binding was opening it to read it.

Another textbook I ordered at the same time different publisher and which has received the same treatment is still in mint condition. See all reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
