Chapter 24 - Electromagnetic waves- can propagate through a vacuum 24.2 Maxwell’s Eq. - Eq. 24.4 is Gauss’s law- the total electrivc flux through any closed surface equals the net charge inside that surface divided by ε. - Gauss’s law for magnetism says that the net magnetic flux through a closed surface is zero. (Eq 24.5) - Eq 24.6 is Faraday’s law of induction descirbes how a changing magnetic field creates an electric field. Line integral of the electric field around any closed path equals to the rate of change of magnetic flux through any surface bounded by that path. - -Eq. 24.7 describes the line integral of the magnetic field around any closed path is determined by the net current the rate of change of electric flux through any surface bounded by that path. 24.3 Electromagnetic Waves - Electric field wave equations and Magnetic field wave equations are the same. 24.16 and 24.15 - ratio of electric field to the magnetic field equals to the speed of light - superposition principle obeyed by electromagnetic waves.
