Maxwell’s Equations and Electromagnetic Waves 13.1 The Displacement Current In Chapter 9, we learned that if a current-carrying wire possesses certain symmetry, the magnetic field can be obtained by using Ampere’s law: 0e n c dI µ ⋅= Bs G G v (13.1.1) The equation states that the line integral of a magnetic field around an arbitrary closed loop is equal to n c I , where enc I is the conduction current passing through the surface bound by the closed path. In addition, we also learned in Chapter 10 that, as a consequence of the Faraday’s law of induction, a changing magnetic field can produce an electric field, according to S d d dt d =− ∫∫ Es BA G G G G v (13.1.2) One might then wonder whether or not the converse could be true, namely, a changing electric field produces a magnetic field. If so, then the right-hand side of Eq. (13.1.1) will have to be modified to reflect such “symmetry” between E G and B G . To see how magnetic fields can be created by a time-varying electric field, consider a capacitor which is being charged. During the charging process, the electric field strength increases with time as more charge is accumulated on the plates. The conduction current that carries the charges also produces a magnetic field. In order to apply Ampere’s law to calculate this field, let us choose curve C shown in Figure 13.1.1 to be the Amperian loop.
