I am doing electrical engineering. I wish to know about Electromagnetics fields. I read little bit in Richard Feynman's lectures on Physics and I liked it a lot. Actually he had written about Emf in Volume 2. Will I be able to understand Volume 2 without seeing Volume 1?
Thanks in advance.

I think so. Provided you know some physics 1 topics from school or whatnot.

But because he covers electromagnetic radiation in Vol. 1, you really want that, too.

Richard Feynman's lectures on physics
FLP I and II are part of the same physics course, not two separate physics courses, and so there are many dependencies. As Daverz points out there is an extended discussion of electromagnetic radiation in Vol. I, starting with the mathematical prerequisites in chapter 21, Algebra, and continuing unabated through chapter 36, Mechanisms of Seeing, all together constituting about 1/3rd of Vol. I. Moreover, in Vol. II there are 121 references to chapters, sections, figures, tables and equations in Vol. I which will be meaningless if you don't have it.
