1st Workshop on Classical Electromagnetism

As the theory of one of the four fundamental forces known to physicists, electromagnetism has its own rightful place in the studies of physics. Yet, electromagnetism is often found to be most challenging. Problems involving electromagnetism are often mathematically more demanding and non-algorithmic in nature. Intense vector calculus and partial differential equations are required for studying the topic.

Considering interest of many, Community of Physics has organized a five-day workshop focusing on classical electromagnetism. The workshop covered both electrostatics & magnetostatics and the sacred laws of electrodynamics: The Maxwell’s equations, including required mathematical demands. The workshop was basically designed for university students but was kept open for all. The workshop was totally free for the audience.

The event of the workshop was held in Udvash Academic and Admission Care, 5 English Road, Dhaka. Governing body of the organization voluntarily supported us providing the venue. Starting from July 12, 2016, the workshop lasted for five days. There were back-to-back sessions of ten hours each day, with one-hour lunch break. Intense topics, even with this long exposure, couldn't break the enthusiasm of the participants. The workshop ended through a certificate giving and closing ceremony on July 16, 2016.

This time fourteen students have taken part in the examination held in the fifth day. Maruf Ahmed from University of Dhaka has secured the first position, Farhana Khan from Viqarunnisa Noon School and College has secured the second position and Imtiaz Taimoor from Military Institute of Science and Technology has secured the third position.

We express our gratitude to all the presenters for their well-organized presentations and their sleepless hard works for preparing them. Special thanks to Odhimatrik, Physics Club of Udvash, for their kind support. We are most thankful to the governing body of Udvash Academic and Admission Care. Without their kind help, this workshop wouldn’t be possible.

Introduction

After a very short introduction, presenter Ashiqul Islam Dip directly started his presentation. The day was consist of another presentation presented Md. Tomal Hossain.

Second and Third and Fourth Day

On the second day, presentations were delayed due to rainy weather, presenter was Md. Tomal Hossain. And on the third and the fourth day, presentations were conducted by Ashiqul Islam Dip, Md. Arafat Hossen and Md. Mehdi Hassan.

Closing Ceremony

On the fifth day, there was an open-book examination on electromagnetism. In the examination, Maruf Ahmed, Farhana Khan and Imtiaz Taimoor secured first, second and third position respectively.
