Website Detail Page

written by Martin Goldman
published by the Physics 2000
This website presents the physics of electromagnetic waves by describing the properties of waves, electric forces, force fields, and vibrating charges. Interactive animations and a question and answer "tutorial" format is used to present the information. Presentations about the applications of E&M waves are also included. This is part of the Physics 2000 web site covering concepts and applications of physics.
