Maxwell's equations

The mathematical set of equations showing the relationship between oscillating electric and magnetic fields that are generated by an oscillating electric charge. Intrinsic to Maxwell's equations is the velocity constant c, which shows that oscillating electric and magnetic fields must travel outward in space at a given velocity, equal to the observed velocity of lights. It is expressed as where μo equals the magnetic permeability and eo equals the electric permeability.
