# Some facts

**Electromagnetic waves**are**disturbances of electromagnetic field**displaced in space.- Electromagnetic waves
**propagate at the speed of light**. - One of the most basic parameters describing a wave (not only electromagnetic) is its
**frequency**. - Since the
**frequency of the wave is directly related to its length**, we can equally**determine the wave by giving its length**. The relationship between the length and the frequency of the electromagnetic wave is as follows:

$\lambda = \frac{c}{\nu}$where:

- $\lambda$ - wavelength,

- $\nu$ - wave frequency,

- $c$ - speed of light.

- $\lambda$ - wavelength,
- The
**waves classification**based on the wavelength or frequency**is conventional**and has the**practical meaning**. This means that individual sources may deliver different bands. - The classification based on wavelength
**does not have to be strictly consistent**with frequency based one. Often**for convenience**(i.e. to avoid fractional values), we**round speed of light**to 300,000 km/s when converting one classification to another. - The properties of electromagnetic waves are described by
**Maxwell's equations**:

$\begin{aligned} & \nabla \times \vec{E} = -\frac{\partial \vec{B}} {\partial {t}} \\ & \nabla \times \vec{B} = \mu \vec{j} +\mu \varepsilon \frac{\partial \vec{E}} {\partial {t}} \\ & \varepsilon \nabla \cdot \vec{E} = \rho \\ & \nabla \cdot \vec{B} = 0 \end{aligned}$gdzie:

- $\nabla$ - Nabla's operator (del),

- $\vec{B}$ - magnetic induction,

- $\vec{E}$ - electric field,

- $\varepsilon$ - medium permittivity,

- $\mu$ - medium permeability.

- $\nabla$ - Nabla's operator (del),
- Historically, phenomena related to electricity and magnetism (and therefore the electric and magnetic field and their changes) were two separate branches of science. Maxwell's equations gave a coherent description
**joining both fields into one**. Thanks to this, there is no need to speak separately about the magnetic and electric field anymore. We can simply use the term**electromagnetic field**instead. - Electric and magnetic fields are
**special cases**of the electromagnetic field. Despite a coherent mathematical apparatus, which**eliminates the need to distinguish between these two types of fields**, sometimes the concepts of magnetic or electric field are used separately if it's handful.
