Physics 102: Lecture 15, Slide 4 Propagation of EM Waves • Changing B field creates E field • Changing E field creates B field E = c B x y If you decrease E, you also decrease B! This is important !
Physics 102: Lecture 15, Slide 5 Preflight 15.4 Suppose that the electric field of an electromagnetic wave decreases in magnitude. The magnetic field: 1 increases 2 decreases 3 remains the same E=cB
