Maxwells Equations

Published on: Tue Feb 01 2011

Maxwells equations are four laws used to understand electromagnetism.

Gauss's law for electricity:
A generalized form of Coulomb's law relating electric field to its sources, electric charges

Gauss's law for magnetism: The same for the magnetic field, except that if there are no magnetic monopoles, magnetic fields likes are continuous, they do not begin or end.

Faraday's Law: An electric field is produced by a changing magnetic field

Ampere's Law:  A magnetic field is produced by an electric current or by a changing electric field.

Electromagnetic waves are produced by changing electric charges.
