COORDINATE SYSTEMS & TRANSFORMATION:
In general, the physical quantities in ElectroMagnetics are functions of space and time. In order to describe the spatial variations of the quantities, its important to define all points uniquely in space in a suitable manner. This requires using an appropriate coordinate system. Hence its very important to understand the coordinate system first.

An electrostatic field is produced by a static charge distribution. A typical example of such a field is found in a cathode-ray tube.Electric power transmission, X-ray machines, and lightning protection are associated with strong electric fields and will require a knowledge of electrostatics to understand and design suitable equipment.
