These time-varying electric and magnetic fields can propagate through space. Also a changing electric field gives rise to a magnetic field. . and the magnetic field due to a constant current.We began this course by studying fields that didn’t vary with time—the electric field due to static charges. In case you didn’t notice—about a half dozen lectures ago things started moving! We found that changing magnetic field gives rise to an electric field.

Production of Electromagnetic Waves Apply a sinusoidal voltage to an antenna. y x z direction of propagation . The fields do not instantaneously permeate all space. but propagate at the speed of light. which extend throughout space. The accelerated charges produce sinusoidally varying electric and magnetic fields. Charged particles in the antenna oscillate sinusoidally.

. Thus.Energy Carried by Electromagnetic Waves Electromagnetic waves carry energy. *J. The rate of flow of energy in an electromagnetic wave is described by a vector S.* S= 1 E B 0 The magnitude S represents the rate at which energy flows through a unit surface area perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation. 1884. Poynting. The direction of S is along the direction of wave propagation. and as they propagate through space they can transfer energy to objects in their path. The units of S are J/(s·m2) =W/m2. called the Poynting vector. S represents power per unit area. H.

Energy Density The energy densities (energy per unit volume) associated with electric and magnetic fields are: 1 B2 uB = 2 0 1 uE = 0E2 2 Using B = E/c and c = 1/(00)½ we can write   E 1 B2 1 c uB = = 2 0 2 0 2 1 0 0E2 1 = = 0E2 2 0 2 1 1 B2 2 uB = uE = 0E = 2 2 0 remember: E and B are sinusoidal functions of time .

The total energy density is equal to the sum of the energy densities associated with the electric and magnetic fields: B2 2 u = uB +uE = 0E = 0 . in a given volume the energy is equally shared by the two fields. the instantaneous energy density associated with the magnetic field equals the instantaneous energy density associated with the electric field. Hence.1 1 B2 2 uB = uE = 0E = 2 2 0 For an electromagnetic wave.

. Momentum and Radiation Pressure of an Electromagnetic Wave. Energy Carried by Electromagnetic Waves.Today’s agenda: Electromagnetic Waves.

Momentum and Radiation Pressure EM waves carry linear momentum as well as energy. If we assume that EM radiation is incident on an object for a time t and that the radiation is entirely absorbed by the object. Today’s lecture is brought to you by the letter P. When this momentum is absorbed at a surface pressure is exerted on that surface. . then the object gains energy U in time t. Maxwell showed that the momentum change of the object is then: U p = (total absorption) c incident The direction of the momentum change of the object is in the direction of the incident radiation.

.If instead of being totally absorbed the radiation is totally reflected by the object. then the magnitude of the momentum change of the object is twice that for total absorption. and the reflection is along the incident path. incident reflected 2U p = c (total reflection along incident path) The direction of the momentum change of the object is again in the direction of the incident radiation.

Radiation Pressure The radiation pressure on the object is defined as the force per unit area: F P= A From Newton’s 2nd F 1 dp Law (F = dp/dt) we have: P = = A A dt U For total absorption.) . p = c dU 1 dp 1 d  U  1  dt  S = = So P =  = A dt A dt  c  c  A  c   incident (Equations on this slide involve magnitudes of vector quantities.

Today’s lecture is brought to you by the letter P. replace S by <S>=Savg=I: Prad = S average c I = c Electromagnetic waves also carry momentum through space with a momentum density of Saverage/c2=I/c2.

I Prad = (total absorption) c incident absorbed Using the arguments above it can also be shown that: 2I Prad = (total reflection) c incident reflected .
