View the content: Production of Electromagnetic Waves

 Name: Production of Electromagnetic Waves ID: m42440 Language: English (en) Summary: Describe the electric and magnetic waves as they move out from a source, such as an AC generator. Explain the mathematical relationship between the magnetic field strength and the electrical field strength. Calculate the maximum strength of the magnetic field in an electromagnetic wave, given the maximum electric field strength.
