Electric Field - Electrodynamic Fields

Electrodynamic Fields

Electrodynamic fields are E-fields which do change with time, when charges are in motion.

An electric field can be produced, not only by a static charge, but also by a changing magnetic field. The electric field is given by:

in which B satisfies

and ∇× denotes the curl. The vector field B is the magnetic flux density and the vector A is the magnetic vector potential. Taking the curl of the electric field equation we obtain,

which is Faraday's law of induction, another one of Maxwell's equations.

Famous quotes containing the word fields:

    The need to exert power, when thwarted in the open fields of life, is the more likely to assert itself in trifles.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
