Responsible coordinator of the module PH9003 in the version of WS 2010/1 was Katharina Krischer.

Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Elektrostatik (Elektrisches Feld, Coulombkraft, Potential), Magnetostatik, Elektrodynamik (Elektrischer Strom, Zusammenhänge Strom und Magnetfeld, Lorentzkraft, Induktion, Maxwell Gleichungen), elektromagnetische Wellen, Optik (geometrische Optik, Interferenz und Beugung).

Learning Outcome

Nach erfolgreicher Teilnahme an dem Modul sind die Studierenden in der Lage:

  • Phänomene der Elektrostatik und Magnetostatik zu beschreiben und zu erklären
  • elektrodynamische Vorgänge und Zusammenhänge zu verstehen
  • die Maxwell Gleichungen als grundlegende Gleichungen zu kennen und zu interpretieren
  • das Phänomen der elektromagnetischen Wellen zu verstehen und die wichtigsten Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Optik daraus ableiten zu können
  • die physikalischen Inhalte mit Alltagserfahrungen und technischen Anwendungen verknüpfen zu können


Keine. Mathematische Grundkenntnisse und Konzepte aus Experimentalphysik I sind jedoch sicherlich hilfreich.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The module exam consists of a written exam. The students have to prove that they master the most important aspects and areas of electrodynamics and that they are able to answer self-dependent questions to the topic.

Participation in tutorials is strongly recommended. There will be a bonus (one intermediate stepping of "0,3" to the better grade) on passed module exams (4,3 is not upgraded to 4,0) for students actively participating in the tutorials. The bonus is applicable to the exam period directly following the lecture period (not to the exam repetition)

Exam Repetition

The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
