If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Feb 23, Muhammad Mossad rated it really liked it Shelves: Join Physics Forums Today! Do you already have an account? It can be more useful if used with “Classical Mechanics” by Taylor. Feb 14, Jun 15, Contoh soalnya banyak dan ada kunci jawabannya, cukup runut dengan basis matematika briffiths diterangkan di awal-awal bab, khususnya kalkulus vektor, sehingga teori dan persamaan matematis bab berikutnya menjadi lebih mudah untuk dipahami.
Often, it seems as though he gives just enough examples for grifftihs to be able to do some of griiffiths problems without trying; others, with some difficulty; and some problems are quite difficult. Feb 28, Charudatta Manwatkar rated it it was amazing. Dec 25, For an example, one of the later chapters in the book gives a brief introduction to the theory of special relativity. To view it, click here. I have gone back to buying American.
Griffiths strikes a really accessible balance between explaining concepts thoroughly and keeping the subject matter moving. Jul 30, Griffithss was so good, I read it twice!
If you are planning to study just the basic part of Electrodynamics, then you can study up to &em 6-Magnetic Fields in Matter and skip the remaining Chapters, but I suggest you to study the remaining chapters as well. Amazing clarity of explanations, thorough and genius treatment of somewhat abstract concepts, easy to parse appendices, and so much more make this the most outstanding, well-written textbook I have ever read not just in physics, but ever.
It has the right balance of mathematics and intuitive discussion. Jul 13, Philip rated it it was amazing.

All in all, it is certainly one of the best books on Electromagnetism out there. There are frequent attempts to unify concepts and keep the big picture in mind.
Coulomb’s law, Biot-Savart law. Oct 29, Adam Lantos rated it it was amazing. The content is the same.
This was a big mistake. If you want to a good mathematical approach to learning Electricity and Magnetism, Griffiths is your man. The best part about this for me was the chapter grivfiths Vector Analysis which most book fails at since vector is core to understanding Electrodynamics and this book devotes an entire chapter for learning vectors.
Of course, having worked with the author, I have the added bonus gfiffiths hearing his voice saying the words in this book when I griffithd it, which certainly adds something.
For those who have used this book. Griffiths is a magician. As an undergraduate my prof asked us to buy Panofsky and Phillips. I am sad that it is the only book used at some schools grfifiths the last few chapters especially relativity are not as good as earlier ones and it does not cover some topics like electrodynamics thoroughly.
This work offers accesible coverage of the fundamentals of electrodynamics, enhanced with with discussion points, examples and exercises. David’s notation is better, except that the r-prime for location of charge and the r-prime for r variable under the integral sign can groffiths confused when you’re just quickly looking something up.
If that’s not the case then it won’t be electrostatic but “this configuration has minimum energy which makes the system more stable and that’s why charges tend to reside on surface if they can! That might work for you. The print and paper quality are typically not as good for international editions vs U.
Introduction to Electrodynamics
Don’t get the Chinese version!!! It covers vector analysis and electrodynamics very comprehensively. I reading another book at the same time or after would help.
Yeah, those are a mouthful. Every book should be this book.
There is no doubt that Griffiths is the best book on electrodynamics for freshmen or sophomores. Draft saved Draft deleted. While students need to be quite comfortable with calculus to deal with the notation, the explanations are elementary Other than getting used to full vector notation in calculus, there is really no reason to teach from any other electrodynamics book at the undergraduate level. Electric fields of stationary charges and magnetic fields of steady currents.
Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. Griffiths
It happens very rarely that a textbook combines mathematical rigor and physical intuition so effortlessly the way this one does. Some people prefer the book of Jackson, but I should say that this is peerless for undergrads majoring physics.
I wonder if either is any good, or if I should just buy a used copy of the hardcover.
Please Add Book Cover 2 11 Jan 28, Taylor has a very similar spirit: I bought the International edition of this book and I am happy with the Quality of the pages and book.
