4 In 1675 Ole Römer presented a calculation of the speed of light. He used the time between eclipses of Jupiter’s Gallilean Satellites to show that the speed of light was finite and that its value was 2.25 × 10 8 m/s. Fizeau’s experiment of 1849 measured the value to be about 3 × 10 8 m/s. (Done before Maxwell’s work.) §32.2: Plane electromagnetic waves and the speed of light
5 The following properties can be deduced from the wave equations and their solutions: 1. Both E and B are perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave. The waves are transverse. 2. E and B are mutually orthogonal 3. E × B gives the direction of wave propagation 4. The fields vary sinusoidally and are in phase

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
