Sometimes a wine glass filled with white wine forms an image of an overhead
light on a white tablecloth. Show how this image is formed. Would the same
image be formed with an empty glass? With a glass of water?
The filled wine glass acts as a t
What are phasors and alternating currents?
An ac source produces an emf that varies sinusiodally with time. A sinusoidal voltage or current
can be represented by a phasor a vector that rotates counterclockwise with constant angular
What is reflection at a plane surface?
When rays diverge from an object point Q and are reflected at a plane surface,
the directions of the outgoing rays are the same as though they had diverged
from a point Q called the image point. Since the
What is electromagnetic induction?
A changing magnetic flux through a circuit loop induced emf in the circuit.
What does Faradays law state?
The magnitude of the induced emf in a circuit equals the absolute value of the time rate of
change of m
Describe electromagnetic waves, the speed of light, and the electromagnetic
When either an electric or a magnetic filed changes with time, a field of the other
kind is induced in the adjacent regions of space. The electromagnetic
