How is works? A) ibrating charges (electric currentO) create changing magnetic field; B) hanging magnetic field induces an electric field (FaradayVs Law, electromagnetic inductionO); ) hanging electric field induces a magnetic field ( Waxwell/s counterpart to FaradayVs Law); and so on. 2lectromagnetic Waves are Transverse Waves! 2 Speed of Light The speed of light in vacuum is an important physical constant denoted by the letter c for constant or the Latin word celeritas meaning \swiftness\. It is the speed of all electromagnetic radiation, including visible light, in a vacuum....
