Description

Maxwell's Equations By the 1860s all the pieces of the electricity and magnetism puzzle were in place, except one. The last piece, discovered by James Clerk Maxwell - the displacement current - was just what was needed to produce particular electromagnetic waves - light. This excellent program brings the last piece of the electricity and magnetism puzzle - displacement current - firmly into the light. Optics Ordinary light can be used to see things on a human scale, x-rays to 'see' things on an atomic scale. Many properties of light are also attributes of waves in particular reflection, refraction, and diffraction. This program demonstrates Maxwell's theory that electromagnetic waves of all wavelengths, from radio waves to gamma-rays to visible light, are all basically the same phenomena. The Michelson-Morley Experiment In 1887 the concept of luminiferous ether - the invisible substance that fills empty space and allows the transmission of light - was one of the central tenets of physi
