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.
The solution is attached below in two files. the files are identical in content, only differ in format. The first is in MS Word format, while ...
The solution calculates the derivation of a wave equation.
