Electromagnetic Radiation

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 Radiation

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
\lambda = \frac{C}{f}
 f = \frac{C}{\lambda}
E = h f = h nfo = h \frac{C}{\lambda}
