Wave Equations — Lesson 4

Alternate video link.

 In this video lesson we derive the wave equations of electric and magnetic fields from Maxwell’s equations. Wave equations are differential equations that relate a quantity’s second derivative in time to its second derivative in space. This lesson is part of the Ansys Innovation Course: Electromagnetic Wave Propagation. This course was created for Ansys Innovation Courses by Kathryn Leigh Smith, Assistant Professor, UNC-Charlotte in partnership with Ansys.
