Demystifying electromagnetic equations : a complete explanation of EM Unit Systems and equation transformations

Author: Douglas L Cohen; Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers.
Publisher: Bellingham, Wash. : SPIE, 2001.
Series: SPIE monograph, PM106.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In classical Newtonian mechanics, equations and formulas never change form. The same cannot be said about equations and formulas of electromagnetic theory, which often change form when converted from one system of units to another. Douglas Cohen provides exactly what the technical professional needs: a thorough explanation of how to convert electromagnetic equations from one system of units to another.
