Electromagnetism:  Electromagnetism Electromagnetic Induction Electromagnetic Waves James Clerk Maxwell Michael Faraday Electromagnetism:  Electromagnetism Electricity and magnetism are different facets of electromagnetism a moving electric charge produces magnetic fields changing magnetic fields move electric charges This connection first elucidated by Faraday, Maxwell Einstein saw electricity and magnetism as frame-dependent facets of unified electromagnetic force Magnetic fields from electricity:  Magnetic fields from electricity A static distribution of charges produces an electric field Charges in motion (an electrical current) produce a magnetic field electric current is an example of charges (electrons) in motion Electromagnets:  Electromagnets Arranging wire in a coil and running a current through produces a magnetic field that looks a lot like a bar magnet called an electromagnet putting a real magnet inside, can shove the magnet back and forth depending on current direction: called a solenoid Induced Current:  Induced Current The next part of the story is that a changing magnetic field produces an electric current in a loop surrounding the field called electromagnetic induction, or Faraday’s Law The Electromagnetic Connection:  The Electromagnetic Connection A changing magnetic field produces an electric field, and a changing electric field produces a magnetic field. Electric and Magnetic fields can produce forces on charges An accelerating charge produces electromagnetic waves (radiation) Both electric and magnetic fields can transport energy Electric field energy used in electrical circuits, e.g., released in lightning Magnetic field carries energy through transformer, for example Electromagnetic Radiation:  Electromagnetic Radiation Interrelated electric and magnetic fields traveling through space All electromagnetic radiation travels at c = 3108 m/s in vacuum – the cosmic speed limit! real number is 299792458.0 m/s exactly What’s “Waving” in EM waves?:  What’s “Waving” in EM waves? What medium transports sound waves? Can there be sound waves in the vacuum of outer space? What medium transports water waves? What medium transports radio waves? A topic of considerable debate in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s Led to the concept of the “luminiferous ether” – an invisible “jello” that was thought to vibrate electromagnetically Experiments that sought this ether didn’t find it! This was quite a surprise Electromagnetic waves travel through empty space! Examples of Electromagnetic Radiation:  Examples of Electromagnetic Radiation AM and FM radio waves (including TV signals) Cell phone communication links Microwaves Infrared radiation Light X-rays Gamma rays What distinguishes these from one another? Uses of Electromagnetic Waves:  Uses of Electromagnetic Waves Communication systems One-way and two-way Radar Cooking (with microwaves) Medical Imaging (X rays) “Night Vision” (infrared) Astronomy (radio, wave, IR, visible, UV, gamma) All that we experience through our eyes is conveyed by electromagnetic radiation… The Electromagnetic Spectrum:  The Electromagnetic Spectrum Relationship between frequency, speed and wavelength f ·l = c f is frequency, l is wavelength, c is speed of light Different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation are better suited to different purposes The frequency of a radio wave determines its propagation characteristics through various media US Frequency Allocation – the FCC:  US Frequency Allocation – the FCC (300 MHz has a wavelength of 1 meter) “Radio” frequency-space is allocated to the hilt! Here’s a sample region from 300–600 MHz International allocation gets tricky Generation of Radio Waves:  Generation of Radio Waves Accelerating charges radiate EM energy If charges oscillate back and forth, get time-varying fields E + + + - - - + - - + - - - + + + Generation of Radio Waves:  Generation of Radio Waves If charges oscillate back and forth, get time-varying magnetic fields too Note that the magnetic fields are perpendicular to the electric field vectors B + + + - - - + - - + - - - + + + Polarization of Radio Waves:  Polarization of Radio Waves Transmitting antenna Reception of Radio Waves:  Reception of Radio Waves Receiving antenna works best when ‘tuned’ to the wavelength of the signal, and has proper polarization Electrons in antenna are “jiggled” by passage of electromagnetic wave Questions:  Questions Why are car radio antennas vertical? Why are cell phone antennas so short? How do polarizing sunglasses work?
