Too many questions for one post.origin":13itbsts said:You are wrong. Look at Maxwells equations, the electric field and the magnetic field are in phase. You asked where does the energy go, it doesn't go anywhere, the enegy is the wave and the is made up of the oscillating fields. Since the AC voltage varies in the form of a sine wave, when passes through zero, is there no current in the line? If you do a straight addition of the voltage over 1 cycle the voltage is zero. Do you think that means there is no current?""The graph you refer to shows that the strength of the magnetic field goes with the strength of the electric field. the fields do NOT propagate like that through space.""
You are right.
The graphic is correct. Find a graphic on the web that shows the magnetic field and the electric field out of phase for electromagnetic radiation. Do you really think that everyone copied the wrong graphic? :lol: Go to the library and look in any physics book (holy crap all the books got it wrong too!!)The graphic is wrong.
Wong, wrong, wrong. The direction of travel is perpendicular to the field directions. Again this is shown in the Maxwell equations.The difference in phase of the electric and magnetic parts determines the direction of the photon.
No difference ,no propagation.
Oh no, ALL of the graphics are wrong - according to you. Like I said find one that is 'right'.This graphic is one amongst many that are wrong.
No you do not understand. There is nothing bad about being wrong - but it is a problem when you can't admitt you are wrong. Are you really so arrogant to think that all the physics books and the entire web has it wrong and they need you to point it out to them. :roll:Do the illustrators misunderstand the instructions of the scientist who says to draw something?.
edited to make my responses sound more like the english language.
Propagation is at right angles to the electric and magnetic fields.
Did you think I meant some other direction?.
In the graphic the wave is moving toward us.
How would the graphic be different for a photon moving away?.
This is important.How does the photon "know" which direction to travel.Toward or away.
