Week 5-1: Maxwell’s Homework Review Review Speed of Light Waves Next: Gauss’ Law Ampere's Law Gauss’ Law for magnetism Faraday's Law Maxwell’s displacement current Reading: Chapter 34 22
Speed of Light To measure the speed of light, we must measure distance and time for light travel. Section 35.1 1667: Galileo hilltop experiment: 3 km Response time ~ 0.2 s too slow 3 3

Speed of Light 1675: Roemer studies timing of eclipse of moons of Jupiter with Earth at point A. Then at point C, 6 months later, eclipse is 16.6 minutes late. Estimated c ≈ 2.3∙108 m/s View of Jupiter and the 4 Galilean moons through a small telescope 4 4
Speed of Light 1849: Fizeau Find time for returning beam to pass through next cog Found c ~ 3.1 × 108 m/s 5 5

Speed of Light 1860: Foucault - vary mirror rotation speed - no signal unless mirror rotates 1/8 turn in Δ T c = 2.98∙108 m/s 6 6
Speed of Light To measure the speed of light, we need to measure distance and time. We can measure distance to 4 parts in 109 We can measure time to 1 part in 1013 Time measurements are convenient, distance measurements are difficult Therefore, we now define the speed of light c = 299,792,458 m/s, Use lasers and time measurements with the definition of c to measure distances 7 7

Faraday's Flux Changing magnetic flux induces E field. E.g. electric motor, generator See chapter 30 dt d d E B Φ - = d S B B = Φ S d B B 14 14
EM Equations so far: J. C. Maxwell realized ~ 1860 that the equations of Electricity & Magnetism were inconsistent and lacked symmetry In the case of no currents or charges: Perhaps a changing flux in E should create B ? 0

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
