Describes how the equations and formulas of classical electromagnetic theory change form when expressed in different units, and how to convert the equations from one system of units to another. The author reviews the standard rules and units for the centimeter-gram-second (cgs) Gaussian system, the Heaviside-Lorentz system, the cgs electrostatic system, the cgs

Overview

Describes how the equations and formulas of classical electromagnetic theory change form when expressed in different units, and how to convert the equations from one system of units to another. The author reviews the standard rules and units for the centimeter-gram-second (cgs) Gaussian system, the Heaviside-Lorentz system, the cgs electrostatic system, the cgs electromagnetic system, and the rationalized meter-kilogram-second (mks) system. The last chapter introduces two shortcuts that can reduce the time required to convert equations—the free-parameter method and substitution tables. Annotation c.
