Electricity and Magnetism

Magnet levitating above a superconducting ring.

Magnet Levitating Above A Superconducting Ring: The image shows a permanent magnet levitating above a conducting non-magnetic ring with zero resistance. The magnet is levitated by eddy currents induced in the ring by the approaching magnet. These currents are always such as to repel the magnet, by Lenz Law. (Image courtesy of Prof. John Belcher.)

Course Description

This freshman-level course is the second semester of introductory physics. The focus is on electricity and magnetism. The subject is taught using the TEAL (Technology Enabled Active Learning) format which utilizes small group interaction and current technology. The TEAL/Studio Project at MIT is a new approach to physics education designed to help students develop much better intuition about, and conceptual models of, physical phenomena.

 

OpenCourseWare presents another version of 8.02: Electricity and Magnetism (Spring 2002) with Professor Walter Lewin, which includes 36 videotaped lectures.
