What is Electromagnetism?
• The study of Maxwell’s equations, devised in 1863 to
represent the relationships between electric and magnetic
fields in the presence of electric charges and currents,
whether steady or rapidly fluctuating, in a vacuum or in
matter.

• The equations represent one of the most elegant and
concise way to describe the fundamentals of electricity and
magnetism. They pull together in a consistent way earlier
results known from the work of Gauss, Faraday, Ampère,
Biot, Savart and others.

• Remarkably, Maxwell’s equations are perfectly consistent
with the transformations of special relativity.

Equivalent to Gauss’ Flux Theorem:

The flux of electric field out of a closed region is proportional to
the total electric charge Q enclosed within the surface.

Area integral gives a measure of the net charge
enclosed; divergence of the electric field gives the density
of the sources.
Gauss’ law for magnetism:

The net magnetic flux out of any closed
surface is zero. Surround a magnetic
dipole with a closed surface. The magnetic
flux directed inward towards the south pole
will equal the flux outward from the north
pole.
If there were a magnetic monopole source,
this would give a non-zero integral.

There are no magnetic monopoles
Equivalent to Faraday’s Law of Induction:

(for a fixed circuit C)
The electromotive force round a
circuit is proportional to the rate of
change of flux of magnetic
field, through the circuit.

• Phase velocities of individual plane waves making
up the wave packet are different,
• The wave packet will then disperse with time
Electromagnetic waves
• Maxwell’s equations predict the existence of electromagnetic waves, later
discovered by Hertz.

Nature of Electromagnetic Waves
• A general plane wave with angular frequency e travelling in the
direction of the wave vector k has the form

• Phase = 2t × number of waves and so is a Lorentz
invariant.
• Apply Maxwell’s equations

Charge Density in a Conducting Material

So charge density decays exponentially with time. For a very good
conductor, charges flow instantly to the surface to form a surface charge
density and (for time varying fields) a surface current. Inside a perfect
conductor (o÷·) E=H=0

attenuation only. No wave propagates: cut-
off modes.
 e>e
