# Derivation of a Wave Equation about E,B & V,A.

1. Derive wave equation (about E, B ) by using Maxwell`s equations.

2. Derive wave equation (about vector potential, scalar potential) by using Maxwell`s equations.

There are no conditions (such as no charges or no current) given, which means I have to solve in a general form!

***I am currently using Reitz's book<Foundations of Electromagnetic Theory> but I think it would be okay to follow other notations of the book such as Griffiths.

Anyway, what Reitz wrote in his book are the maxwell equations in this notation..:

del X H=J+dD/dt

del X E=-dB/dt

del dot D= rho

del dot B= 0.
