There’s a bunch of math here, but it’s kind of a big deal. In short, it shows something really important — that light is an electromagnetic wave.

Well, let’s just get to it.

**Maxwell’s Equations**

I’m going to give my very brief review of Maxwell’s equations. Really, you spend one whole semester of physics just getting to this…
