PHYS1022 - Electricity and Magnetism - Help with Integration

This page provides you with some resources to help with the integration pieces of the course.


  • Revision notes on integration here
  • A video introducing the idea of using integration to add up
  • A video describing two examples of using integration to add up in one dimension
  • A video describing how to compute the area of a square using integration
  • A video following on from the last one in which the charge of a square is computed assuming some no-uniform charge distribution
  • Introduction to 2d polar coordinates and the infinitessimal 2d area element
  • Following on from the previous video I compute the area of a circle by integration
  • Introduction to 3d polar coordinates
  • The 3d infinitessimal volume element and the volume of a sphere
