Maxwell's equations

Maxwell's equations are derived using Faraday's induction effect yet induction is not luminous. Can someone explain how Maxwell's equations can be used to derive the electromagnetic wave equations of light?

Faraday's induction equation is only one of the Maxwell equations so is not the whole story.

You will find this link to be informative.

This is simply beautiful and magnificant since you a absolutely right and your statement also verifies my theory that Maxwell's theory is based on Faraday's induction effect which is certainly not the whole store since Hecht also use a varying capacitor to derive Maxwell's equations yet Maxwell's divergence equations represents a transverse wave because of the dote produce yet the cross product of Maxwell's curl equation represent a longitudinal wave which you link diametrically and macroscopicaly depicts. Thank you for your comments that support my theory.

If you are saying that $\displaystyle \nabla \times E = -\frac{\partial B}{\partial t}$ is incorrect then, no, I do not agree with you. I was saying that Faraday's equation is part of the four Maxwell equations and all of them are necessary to describe EM fields. It may be of interest that Hecht is able to derive the Maxwell equations in a non-standard way (I think it is anyway) but I very much doubt he invalidated any of them.

You have not explain how Maxwell's equ based on Faraday's law can be used to represent the structure of light since Faraday's induction effect is not luminous.

You have consistently ignored any request to explain how you are using the word "luminous" to describe an equation.

Thread closed.
