Nowadays information processing, storage and transmission are done using electromagnetic phenomena. Therefore, the background knowledge for a computer engineer must include the study of electricity, magnetism and electric circuits.

This course aims to provide the students with basic knowledge on electromagnetism and signal processing. An experimental approach is used with simple on-hands experiments that the students may conduct during the practical sessions, in order to strengthen the subjects covered in the lectures and to gain experience with the use of measuring devices. The Computer Algebra System (CAS) used in Physics 1 is also used in this course to help solve problems and to visualize electric and magnetic fields.

In order to pass this course students must prove to be able to:

- Analyze simple electrical circuits explaining their working principles.
- Identify electromagnetic phenomena in their daily experience.
- Use physical principles to explain how electric appliances work.
- Evaluate different electrical devices which perform the same task (for instance, displays based on CRT, plasma, LCD, OLED, etc) pointing out their pros and cons.

Enrolled students are expected to have attended the first-year courses Physics I and Complements of Mathematics or other equivalent courses.

- Electrostatics. Atomic structure. Electric charges and forces. Conductors and insulators.
- Electricity. Electrostatic potential. Electromotive-force (EMF) sources. Conductors, semiconductors and diodes. Electric current. Electric Power. Ohm's law. Resistance. Superconductivity. Resistors combinations.
- Electric capacity. Isolated conductors. Capacitors. Electrostatic energy. Capacitors combinations.
- Direct-current circuits. Circuit diagrams. Circuit laws. Meshes method. Stationary state of circuits with capacitors.
- Electric field and potential. Field and potential produced by a system of point charges. Field lines and equipotential surfaces. Critical points of the electric field. Electric flux. Gauss law. Field and potential in the conductors.
- Magnetic field. Magnetic forces. Magnetic momentum and torque. Ampère's law. Loops and coils.
- Electromagnetic induction. Induced electric field. Faraday and Lenz laws. Alternating current generators. Inductance. Self-induction.
- Signal processing. Circuit's transient state. Differential equations of circuits. Transfer function. Time constants. Generalized impedance. Impedance combinations.
- Alternating-current circuits. Sinusoidal functions. Phasors. Alternating voltage. Complex impedance. Power dissipated in circuits. Frequency filters. Response function. Resonance.
- Electromagnetic waves and light. Maxwell equations. Induced fields. Electromagnetic field in vacuum. Wave equation. Plane polarized waves. Harmonic waves. Electromagnetic spectrum. Ondulatory and corpuscular theories of light. Light-emitting diodes (LED).

This is a practical course, with an active teaching methodology. Laboratory equipment is used during the lectures and practical sessions, as well as computing systems for e-learning and computer algebra system (CAS).

The practical sessions are conducted in the Department of Engineering Physics's computer room (room B233). During those sessions students work in groups of two at one of the computers in the room, which has access to the support material including some practical activities or simulations, lecture notes, multiple-choice questions and proposed problems. Students should answer the multiple-choice questions among and solve some of the problems in the chapter for that week. The remaining problems in the chapter are left as homework.

The master classes are used for conducting experimental demonstrations, as well as giving further explanations for the material on the textbook. The support for this course, including lecture notes, teaching materials, quizzes results, and communication among students and teachers, is done using the e-learning server (https://def.fe.up.pt/eic0014) which has public access, except for the sections related to evaluation.

If D denotes the grade for the distributed component and E the exam grade, the final grade is calculated with the following equation:

Maximum ( E; 0.4*D + 0.6*E )

Namely, if the grade of the distributed component is higher than the exam grade, the distributed component will have a weight of 40% and the exam 60%. But if the exam grade is higher, the distributed component will be ignored and the final grade will be the exam grade. There is no minimum grade required in the exam and the exam grade will have one decimal digit. The final grade will be rounded to an integer (9.5 is rounded to 10 but 9.4999 is rounded to 9).

None.
