How does an electromagnetic wave start?

What generates an electromagnetic wave?

  • Electromagnetic waves are generated by moving electrons. An electron generates an electric field which we can visualize as lines radiating from the electron Figure 10a.

What exactly is an electromagnetic wave?

  • Electromagnetic Waves. The electromagnetic waves are the waves which are generated by coupling of magnetic field with electric field. These waves are in perpendicular direction to both the electric and magnetic and also perpendicular to each other. These are first studied by James Clerk Maxwell and Heinrich Hertz .

What are facts about electromagnetic waves?

  • The electromagnetic spectrum is the complete range of electromagnetic waves on a continuous distribution from a very low range of frequencies and energy levels, with a correspondingly long wavelength, to a very high range of frequencies and energy levels, with a correspondingly short wavelength.
