What is Electromagnetic energy: Definition and 30 Discussions
In physics, and in particular as measured by radiometry, radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic and gravitational radiation. As energy, its SI unit is the joule (J). The quantity of radiant energy may be calculated by integrating radiant flux (or power) with respect to time. The symbol Qe is often used throughout literature to denote radiant energy ("e" for "energetic", to avoid confusion with photometric quantities). In branches of physics other than radiometry, electromagnetic energy is referred to using E or W. The term is used particularly when electromagnetic radiation is emitted by a source into the surrounding environment. This radiation may be visible or invisible to the human eye.
I came across this video where Dr. Tyson talks about Nikola Tesla.
Neil Tyson on Tesla.
From 4:47 onwards, he says "We now send energy through wires", and talks about how bizarre it would be to walk around/stand in the way of such energy flow. Further he says the power transmission lines are...
The integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect occurs when a photon goes through a gravitational potential that changes due to spacetime expansion (presumably caused by dark energy). For that reason, a photon going through a gravitational well would gain energy (blueshift) when entering and it would lose...

An isotropic point source radiates electromagnetic energy, and its output is measured by a thin disc-like detector of radius R. Calculate the power measured by the detector at distance h from the source, assuming that the plane of the disc is orthogonal to the line of sight...

1.There is an electric field between ionosphere and ground, also Earth's magnetic field is perpendicular to this E field, hence by poynting theorem integrating E x H across the entire surface of Earth gives a great deal of energy flowing west to east.
2. |S| = (E X B)/u0 = (150 V/m X...

For a home work assignment, I have to build a theoretical device which uses a laser to boil water. But I have no idea how to figure out how long it would take the device to transfer enough heat to boil the water. The laser diode has a wavelength of 445nm. We are supposed to...
Hello,
I've been reading the Stern-Gerlach experiment, and where the concept of electron spin is introduced, am facing a problem, i.e., if you consider electron a charged rotating sphere, then the electromagnetic energy and size of the electron becomes huge! So how do you deal with this?
Thanks...
Hey can I produce a electromagnetic radiation at 2.4 ghz from a 10 volt source then walk 25 meters away harvesting the electromagnetic radiation with a 2 foot copper wire turning it back in electrical energy to power a led
The General Relativity text I am using gives two forms of the Electromagnetic Energy Momentum Tensor:
{\rm{ }}\mu _0 S_{ij} = F_{ik} F_{jk} - \frac{1}{4}\delta _{ij} F_{kl} F_{kl} \\
{\rm{ }}\mu _0 S_j^i = F^{ik} F_{jk} - \frac{1}{4}\delta _{ij} F^{kl} F_{kl} \\
I don't see how these...
I have to questions that I can't seem to understand.
I've seen in my textbook the relation E=cB being deduced from Faradays law applied to some type of rectangular loop. The problem is this is done with regards to a planar wave. So is this relationship general for all EM waves? If so, how? And...
While I get the coherent and incoherent scattering process that leads to the bragg diffraction condition, I don't really understand the physical mechanism behind the transmission and reflection. Now, as I understand it, the bragg diffraction condition is satisfied only for one or two particular...
When we have a current in a long wire, what is the kind of total energy of the system? We do have an electric field inside the wire and a magnetic field outside it. I think the electric field has an energy, say E, and it is only this energy which appears also as magnetic energy and we don't have...
Does anyone know of reaction that can generate a a steady source of light? Preferably one easier to activate than burning of magnesium strips(which is too momentary anyway, I'm trying to make a chemical reaction that can eventually power a photoresistor/ light).
Say I have a volume of hydrogen gas that is raised to a temperature T so that 99.9 percent of the gas is ionized. If now, with the plasma at some pressure P, the volume is compressed a small volume dV such that no energy leaves the volume I'm curious of a total accounting of where the energy PdV...
We know that the conservation of electromagnetic energy is expressed via the continuity equation below:
\large{\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}}+\vec{\nabla}\cdot\vec{S}=-\vec{J}\cdot\vec{E}
with u=\frac{1}{2}(\vec{E}\cdot\vec{D}+\vec{B}\cdot\vec{H}) and \vec{S}=\vec{E}\times\vec{H} .

Hmm, not sure if this is the right place to be asking this.

Hi all physics lovers,
please bear with my question as its like a kid wondering about something :)
Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed. So when I switch off an electric bulb, there is darkness. So where does the electromagnetic energy go? :confused:
Thank you.
I have noticed in faraday cages and in microwaves that the holes in the screen manage to prevent certain frequencies from passing through them. Why it is that this happens?
Hi All
Is the following statement true:
Electromagnetic energy requires a wave medium to propagate. (The way free electrons in a copper conductor transfer energy in an AC circuit. Electrons can act as wave medium).
If it is true, How does EM energy travel in space. Can gravity act as a...
some questions that have been bugging me:
1.Is there a beginning and an end to a photon? Does it take different amounts of time for different wavelength photon energies to be absorbed? would for example a radio wave photon be absorbed at a slower rate than a higher energy/frequency gamma...

We are constantly surrounded by electromagnetic energy, right?
In what way does this energy exist? Is it measurable? Is there much of it?

In electrodynamics, the gauge transformations are:

These leave the electric and magnetic fields...
First off, I know nothing about physics so if this question seems bizarre, that's probably why!
