Radio has been a communications medium, a recreational device, and many other things to us. When British physicist James Clerk Maxwell published his theory of electromagnetic waves in 1873, he probably never could have envisioned the sorts of things that would come of such a principle. His theory mainly had to do with light waves, but fifteen years later, a German physicist named

In 1885, Thomas Edison patented a communication system the used a type of vertical antenna. Then came James Clerk Maxwell, who in 1864, presented his theory on electromagnetism to the Royal Society, providing the theoretical foundation for antennas. With this discovery, many other scientists began to explore this new frontier and the age of the radio began. Just

He began his studies of the recent electromagnetic theory of James Clerk Maxwell. Maxwell's theory had been based on unusual mechanical ideas about the luminiferous ether. and had not been universally accepted. In 1884, Hertz rederived Maxwell's equations by a new method, casting them in modern form without assumption

He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect "and other contributions"; however, the announcement of the award was not made until a year later, in 1922. His theoretical work suggested the possibility of creating an atomic bomb. His discovered equation, E=MC2 is well known as one that changed the world.

    radio waves have found use in a medium that has positively marked history and modern technological progress. Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell initially predicted the existence of radio waves through intense mathematical work in 1867. After meticulous evaluation of the wavelike properties of light and similarities in electrical and magnetic observations, Maxwell proposed a series of equations that described light and radio waves as those of electromagnetism. A charged particle radiates these waves

    character and narrator James Maxwell discusses that everybody has a role to play whether they like it or not. This theme can be extracted because James Maxwell talks about how everybody is cog in the machine that is society and that he is both pleased and dissatisfied with his role. However, some could argue that a certain person or group of people could be exempt from this rule. In reality, everybody is a part of something greater even though some role can be greater. James Maxwell claims that everybody

Pynchon, for example, in "Lot 49" speaks at length about Maxwell's Demon, a machine proposed in 1871 by physicist James Clerk Maxwell which, theoretically, could defy the Second Law of Thermodynamics by producing energy in a system without putting any energy into that system. Although the basic idea of the machine provides a neat metaphor for Oedipa's own project, ironically
