- Coulomb's law [r]: An inverse-square distance law, like Newton's gravitational law, describing the forces acting between electric point charges; also valid for the force between magnetic poles.
^{[e]} - Derivative [r]: The rate of change of a function with respect to its argument.
^{[e]} - Divergence theorem [r]: A theorem relating the flux of a vector field through a surface to the vector field inside the surface.
^{[e]} - Electric displacement [r]: a vector field
**D**in a dielectric;**D**is proportional to the outer electric field**E**.^{[e]} - Electric field [r]: force acting on an electric charge—a vector field.
^{[e]} - Gauss' law (magnetism) [r]: States that the total magnetic flux through a closed surface is zero; this means that magnetic monopoles do not exist.
^{[e]} - Helmholtz decomposition [r]: Decomposition of a vector field in a transverse (divergence-free) and a longitudinal (curl-free) component.
^{[e]} - James Clerk Maxwell [r]: (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
^{[e]} - Magnetic induction [r]: A divergence-free electromagnetic field, denoted
**B**, determining the Lorentz force upon a moving charge, and related to the magnetic field**H**.^{[e]} - Maxwell equations [r]: Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities.
^{[e]} - Spherical polar coordinates [r]: Angular coordinates on a sphere: longitude angle φ, colatitude angle θ
^{[e]} - Vector field [r]: A vector function on the three-dimensional Euclidean space .
