## Description

Vector calculus is an invaluable tool in much of physics – electromagnetism is a prime example. The use of vector calculus is highlighted in an exploration of the concept of inductance and a reconsideration of its calculation. A form of the standard equation for inductance that is more versatile is derived and applied in some examples.
