INTRODUCTION
Electromagnetic fields are present everywhere in
our environment but are invisible to human eye.
It is having both electric and magnetic fields.
Electric fields are produced by thunderstorms
Magnetic fields are produced by the earth.
Eg; X-ray,Radio,Tv,Mobile phone emits EM rays.
EM field depends upon magnitude,
position,velocity and acceleration of the charges.
VECTOR ANALYSIS
Vector analysis is a mathematical shorthand.
Physical quantity can be represented either
scalar or vector.
A quantity expressed only by magnitude is
called a scalar.eg: mass, time, temp, etc.,
A quantity expressed both magnitude and
direction is called a vector.eg:force, velocity,
etc.,
VECTOR ANALYSIS
MULTIPLICATION OF SCALAR AND
VECTOR
SCALAR MULTIPLICATION:
It is a scalar quantity whose magnitude is the product of
magnitude of the vectors multiplied by the cosine of the angle
between them.
VECTOR MULTIPLICATION:
It is defined as a vector whose magnitude is the product of the
magnitude of the 2 vectors and sine of the angle between
them.

DIVERGENCE
The divergence of a vector A at any point is defined
as the limit of its surface integrated per unit volume
as the volume enclosed by the surface is zero.

means flow. Isaac Newton first used this term
as fluxion into differential calculus. In
mathematics and physics flux is used as the
basic and global word.
Magnetic Flux
It means the number magnetic field lines passing

Its SI unit is Weber and in CGS is Maxwell. It is
denoted as m.
