Ch. 23: Electromagnetic Radiation
Calculating flux through a surface between the plates of a capacitor
o Time rate of change of the electric flux in a region is related to the integral of the magnetic
field along path surrounding the region:

Ch. 22: Faradays Law
-We find experimentally that if there is a time-varying magnetic field in a region of space there is also a
curly E-field throughout that region and surrounding regions.
-That curly E-field CANNOT be made by stationary charges.
