This video was recorded at MIT 8.02 Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism - Spring 2002. 8.02 is a second-semester freshman physics class in electromagnetism. The website features lecture notes, problem sets with solutions, exams with solutions, links to related resources, and a complete set of videotaped lectures. The 36 video lectures on Electricity and Magnetism, by Professor Lewin, were recorded on the MIT campus during the Spring of 2002. Prof. Lewin is well-known at MIT and beyond for his dynamic and engaging lecture style. Course Description 8.02 Classical Theory of Electromagnetism. In addition to the basic concepts of Electromagnetism, a vast variety of interesting topics are covered in this course: Lightning, Pacemakers, Electric Shock Treatment, Electrocardiograms, Metal Detectors, Musical Instruments, Magnetic Levitation, Bullet Trains, Electric Motors, Radios, TV, Car Coils, Superconductivity, Aurora Borealis, Rainbows, Radio Telescopes, Interferometers, Particle Accelerators (a.k.a. Atom Smashers or Colliders), Mass Spectrometers, Red Sunsets, Blue Skies, Haloes around Sun and Moon, Color Perception, Doppler Effect, Big-Bang Cosmology. OpenCourseWare presents another version of 8.02T: Electricity and Magnetism. OpenCourseWare also presents Professor Lewin's freshman physics course series 8.01 – Newtonian Mechanics - with a complete set of 35 video lectures from the Fall of 1999 and 8.03 - Vibrations and Waves - with a complete set of 23 video lectures from the Fall of 2004.
