## The Great Unification: Maxwell's Equations

- 1671 Words
- 4 Pages

Maxwell’s Equations are a set of four equations that govern all of electromagnetism. The equations show a unification of the electric and magnetic fields and are often considered one of the greatest unifications in physics, describing one of the four fundamental interactions, the electromagnetic force. The unification of the electric and magnetic forces in the 19th century by Maxwell’s Equations led to several scientific advancements – including an entire new branch of physics, electromagnetism

when a German physicist, Heinrich Hertz, was testing Maxwell’s Theory of Electromagnetic Waves. Hertz discovered that ultraviolet light discharged certain electrically charged metallic plates, a phenomenon that could not be explained by Maxwell’s Wave Theory. In order to explain this phenomenon termed the photoelectric effect, because both light and electricity are involved, the Quantum Theory was developed. The Photoelectric Effect Maxwell’s work with the Theory of Electromagnetic Waves may seem

special relativity, which stems from the two aforementioned postulates. The problem begins with the applications of Maxwell’s equations for the static and nonstatic cases. While Maxwell’s equations are symmetric for stationary bodies, asymmetries arise in the electrodynamic equations. Looking at the example of motion in a magnet and a conductor, Einstein explains that the equations depend only on the relative motion between the two (1). Whereas the previous models heavily depended on which component

Helmholtz as his assistant. In 1883, Hertz moved to Kiel to lecture in physics. 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 of ether. However, the lack of a proper laboratory there caused him to take up the position of

that is fixed to a capacitor. As a magnetic field fluctuates across a conductor it causes charges to move. This motion causes an electro magnetic wave. The relations between the electricity and magnetism are explained by Maxwell's equations. Maxwell's equations are four equations that relate magnetic fields electric fields and charges and current. A radio wave is an electro magnetic wave. We modulate them using three different modulations, frequency modulation, amplitude modulation, and pulse modulation

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 as they accelerate through space. In ...

complex. Depend on the past experiences on fiber optic sensor, it was difficult to obtain high reliability and accuracy. Besides, the detection accuracy may decrease due to chromatic dispersion that exists in fiber optic SPR sensors. By using Maxwell’s equation, theoretical analysis of the sensing mechanism and calculation algorithms of all configurations were obtained [18, 19]. Recently, theoretical analysis on effect of the propagation of skew ray which occupies the most part of light beam in fiber

the applicability of the proposed designs we calculated various parameters to analyse the buffering capacity of the proposed PC waveguide. Chapter 2 gives a theoretical introduction to the properties of photonic crystals starting with Maxwell's equations. These equations are cast as a linear Hermitian eigenvalue problem, a form in which many useful properties become apparent. The photonic crystal properties are then described by the characteristic photonic band structure or dispersion diagram representing

Physics of Microwaves Microwaves are used in our everyday lives but most most people don't realize that physics plays a large and important part in the simple household item. Whenever we heat our food we are oblivious to the forces that cause such a thing to occur and we don't fully understand what happens in front of our eyes and how our food really gets heated in such a simple and efficient way. The first thing people need to understand is that microwaves are actually electromagnetic waves. Wavelengths
