Electromagnetic RadiationEdit

Electromagnetic Radiation is observed in Dipoles consists of two straight wire of different polarities carrying current . Electromagnetic Radiation is spread out as an ElectroMagnetic Wave that compose of an ElectroMagnet Wave perpendicular to an Electric Wave


Characteristics of Electromagnetic RadiationEdit

Electromagnetic Radiation travels at a speed equal to speed of light in a vaccum C = 3 x 1018 and has a Quanta Energy Level.

v = C = λ f
E = h f = h nfo =
