This video contains two bands. Band A, Electromagnetic waves, accompanies Unit 12 and introduces the idea of an electromagnetic wave and shows how a wave equation can be derived from Maxwell's Equa...tions. Band C, Plane polarized waves, accompanies Unit 13 and investigates two important properties of electromagnetic waves, plane-ness and polarization, and shows how plane-polarized waves can be used to model real world phenomena.
