Swartz Energy and Power λ c c z x y E H c Basic Wave Motion Consider a wave moving in the +x direction. v x () t x a , 2 Swartz and Rana 06/5/31 Electromagnetic Fields and Waves – Fall 2009 Lecture 12: Fundamental relation for wave motion: 1-D wave equation: v f = v = velocity of wave propagation λ = wavelength of the wave f = frequency of the wave T = period = 1/ f 2 2 2 2 2 , 1 , t t x a v x t x a = Electromagnetic Wave Motion (1) Time varying electric and magnetic fields are coupled. This coupling is responsible for the propagation of electromagnetic waves.
