by Edward Purcell



Electricity And Magnetism Purcell. by. Edward Mills Purcell. Purcell's classic introductory text places an emphasis on an intuitive understanding of the physics over mathematical formalism.

Electricity And Magnetism Purcell. Electricity and Magnetism, Berkeley Physics Course.

Edward M. Purcell (Author). I would say only this: Provided you have some basis on Special Relativity, this is the best first textbook on Electricity and Magnetism. ISBN-13: 978-0070049086. Surely, after it you will need some other text with a stronger emphasis on mathematics. But the physical knowledge/intuition is build here better than in any other book, thanks to the explanations of Edward Purcell. At the undergraduate level is possibly one of the best written books in physics.

Cambridge University Press. Its author is the 1952 Nobel laureate. Purcell from Harvard University who has done groundbreaking work on nuclear magnetic. resonance in fluids and solids. The present book is an introduction to the world of electricity and. magnetism in the best manner of a textbook for students. As such, it provides thorough discussion of.

With profound physical insight, Purcell covers all the standard introductory topics, such as electrostatics, magnetism, circuits, electromagnetic waves, and electric and magnetic fields in matter. Taking a non-traditional approach, the textbook focuses on fundamental questions from different frames of reference. Mathematical concepts are introduced in parallel with the physics topics at hand, making the motivations clear.

Getting a book like Electricity and Magnetism" by Edward Purcell and David Morin is not supposed to be a major problem for any electrical engineering student taking a course in electricity and magnetism. For 50 years, Edward M. Purcell's classic textbook has introduced students to the world of electricity and magnetism. It features hundreds of new examples, problems, and figures, and contains discussions of real-life applications.

With profound physical insight, Purcell covers all the standard introductory topics, such as electrostatics, magnetism, circuits, electromagnetic waves, and electric and magnetic fields in matter. Taking a non-traditional approach, the textbook focuses on fundamental questions from different frames of reference. Mathematical concepts are introduced in parallel with the physics topics at hand, making the motivations clear. Macroscopic phenomena are derived rigorously from microscopic phenomena. With hundreds of illustrations and over 300 end-of-chapter problems, this textbook is widely considered the best undergraduate textbook on electricity and magnetism ever written.

This is the best freshman E&M text of all time -- provided that the class consists of students ready to handle the material at this level. Although the necessary tools of vector calculus are introduced from scratch, I doubt that most students would be able to get up to speed unless they had already had vector calculus or were at least taking it concurrently.

The best known innovation of this book was the presentation of magnetism as a consequence of relativity. The book assumes you've already learned special relativity. (There is an appendix on SR in the 3rd edition, but realistically that wouldn't be sufficient.)

I ordered a copy of the 3rd edition ($76), and compared it side by side with my disintegrating but much-loved copy of the 1965 1st edition. The price is amazingly reasonable compared to the kind of exploitative prices you see these days for textbooks.

One thing I'd never noticed before is that the 1st edition has a notice on its copyright page saying that it's available for royalty-free use after 1970. (It was an NSF-sponsored project.) So theoretically it's legal to scan it and put it on the web for free. However, what I find when I look around on the web is people illegally making the 2nd edition available through sleazy file-sharing sites.

The most important change is the switch from cgs to SI units. Three cheers. Without this change the book would have stayed in the ghetto forever.

The 3rd edition is almost twice the bulk of the 1st. This is mostly because there are far more problems, and many of them have complete solutions in the back of the book. This is a great new feature.

There is also an applications section at the end of every chapter.

For the most part, though, it's exactly the same text with only a very few minor changes here and there. The line art is mostly the same. The graphic design isn't as nice as in the 1st edition, which often used gray backgrounds on the figures, with a full bleed. In the 3rd edition, the figures often aren't sufficiently clearly divided from the text, and the effect is extremely ugly.

I would say only this:
Provided you have some basis on Special Relativity, this is the best first textbook on Electricity and Magnetism.
Surely, after it you will need some other text with a stronger emphasis on mathematics.
But the physical knowledge/intuition is build here better than in any other book, thanks to the wonderful/delightful explanations of Edward Purcell.
At the undergraduate level is possibly one of the best written books in physics.

I studyed it in my years of university, subsidiarly to Halliday (the main text) and liked very much of Purcell's book. It's more hard that Halliday's and i don't liked of CGS system. But the explanations are good and the problems were interestings, and many times challenging. Now appear a new version, aperfectaly, corrected, MKS system, and with many problens solved and others proposed. The level is from intermedieted to advanced, in betwin Halliday and Reitz (or Griffts), more near Reitz. It is time of review my forty years old knwoledge of eletromagnetism and it will be with Purcell's.

In your introductory EM course, this may seem a bit too much. But after reviewing the subject after you take upper division, you will see that this was actually amazing in detail as it takes from other subjects and combines all relevant information.

This book is very rigorous. The author demonstrates outstanding writing skills; the explanations are very clear and precise. Do your homework on vector calculus. There is hardly no review on the subject. The book jumps head first into vector calc., so if you're rusty on the subject I strongly recommend you review it, or have a calc. textbook at the ready. Sit back and enjoy the ride; this book is amazing.

This book is really an intro to E&M but it is very dense with verbal descriptions of the physics involved. For that reason even though it seems light on equations it is fairly heavy reading.

There are plenty of diagrams and interesting situations. Rather than just throw out a few equations and work an example the author goes into great detail in describing the physics of a situation. I think it is a very useful book for that reason.

This is not the sort of text you can scan through to find an equation and then plug and chug some numbers. It requires actually reading the chapters to get the gist of what he's saying. It would be better paired with a book heavy on equations and examples and light on verbal descriptions rather than used stand alone.

The real gem in the book is the derivation of the magnetic field from Special Relativity. This is something that should be standard in E&M texts but seems to be missing in most of them.

Excellent book. It is very didactic with very good explanations and pertinent mathematical derivations.
Purcell takes an unconventional approach in this book. Most of the electromagnetics is derived from three laws in this book: Coulomb's law, charge invariance, and special theory of relativity. This approach is especially beautiful and fruitful as the reader can make deep connections between electricity and magnetism. Yet, the book is easy to digest as most of the material is explained over experiments with very useful illustrations. The clarity and precise language with which the material is presented almost qualifies the text for bedtime reading. Finally, each chapter ends with practical applications of the topics covered.
