Physics 102: Lecture 15, Slide 4 Electromagnetic Waves Maxwell’s formulation of electricity and magnetism has an interesting consequence. The equations can be manipulated to give a wave equations for E and B of the form: 2 2 0 0 2 2 d E d E dx dt μ ε = This can be recognized as describing an electromagnetic wave traveling through space with a velocity of: EM wave 0 0 9 2 2 7 2 8 1 (4 9.0 10 Nm /C ) (4 10 N/A ) 3.0 10 m/s v π - = × × = × = × Physics 113 Dr. Renat Letfullin

Physics 102: Lecture 15, Slide 6 x z y E B loop in xy plane loop in xz plane loop in yz plane 1 2 3 Which orientation will have the largest induced emf? Hint: Look at flux of B. Concept question Physics 113 Dr. Renat Letfullin
x z y E B Only the loop in the xy plane will have a magnetic flux through it as the wave passes. The flux will oscillate with time and induce an emf. (Faraday’s Law!) loop in xy plane loop in xz plane loop in yz plane 1 2 3 Which orientation will have the largest induced emf? Concept question
