Maxwell's Equations and Electromagnetic Waves - Electricity, Magnetism - Fundamentals of Physics - Ramamurti Shankar - Lecture 14 of 25 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Advanced Physics

Description: Waves on a string are reviewed and the general solution to the wave equation is described. Maxwell's equations in their final form are written down and then considered in free space, away from charges and currents. It is shown how to verify that a given set of fields obeys Maxwell's equations by considering them on infinitesimal cubes and loops.
