Are Electromagnetic Waves Always Transverse?

In this insight we shall endeavor in the realm of classical electrodynamics and examine whether EM waves are always transverse. We shall make use of Jefimenko’s equations and Poynting’s Theorem and conclude that EM waves are always transverse per the  weak definition of transverse where we only require the fields to be perpendicular to the…

A Numerical Insight for the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

The purpose of this article is not to provide some rigorous statement, neither a rigorous clever proof of the fundamental theorem of calculus. It is rather to give some sort of numerical insight on an intuitive simplified statement of the fundamental theorem of calculus. Simplified intuitive statement of the fundamental theorem of calculus: ” Integration…
