Biographical/​Historical note:
Anupama Prakash is an associate professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, RV College of Engineering, Bangalore, India. Dwarkadas Pralhaddas Kothari is an educationist and professor who has held leadership positions at various engineering institutions in India including IIT Delhi, Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology and VIT University, Vellore. Currently, he is the Director Research, MVSR Engineering College and very recently was Director General of Vindhya Institute of Technology and Science (VITS), Indore. As recognition of his contributions to engineering education, he was honoured as an IEEE Fellow. N.R. Sree Harsha is an electrical engineer and a physics enthusiast. His research interests include classical electromagnetism and the theory of relativity. He graduated in electrical engineering from R V College of Engineering, Bangalore, India and was head of the Electrical Systems for the 'Chimera' Formula-Hybrid Project.
Summary note:
Circuit theory is one of the most important tools of the electrical engineer, and it can be derived with suitable approximations from Maxwell's equations. Despite this, university courses treat electromagnetism and circuit theory as two separate subjects and at advanced level, students can lack a basic understanding of the classical electromagnetism applied in the context of electric circuits to fully appreciate and apply circuit theory and understand its limitations. Here the authors build on their graduate teaching experiences and lectures to treat these topics as a single subject and derive and present the important results from circuit analyses, such as Kirchhoff's laws and Ohm's law, using the ideas of the classical electromagnetism.
