Maxwell’s Equations and Electromagnetic Waves

“Maxwell’s equations are popularly known as electromagnetic field equations due to their importance.”


This chapter discusses

  • Maxwell’s equations in any media, in static, time varying and in phasor form with their complete meaning.
  • Equation of continuity in time varying form.
  • Different types of media.
  • Boundary conditions in scalar and vector form.
  • Helmoltz theorem and Lorentz Gauge condition.
  • Objective questions and solved problems useful for class tests, final examinations and also for competitive examinations.
  • Exercise problems to develop self problem solving skills.

Static electric field has applications in cathode ray oscilloscopes for deflecting ...
