Homework Help: 4th Maxwell equation

  1. Feb 21, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Simple question:
    - I am not sure about the translation: That second term is called displacement current? Or not?
    - The question: Is the displacement current a consequence of time dependant electric field OR is it the other way around? :/

    2. Relevant equations
    ##\nabla \times B=\mu_0 j+\mu_ 0\varepsilon _0 \frac{\partial E}{\partial t}##

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I would be guessing, which is not very professional, meaning I would rather stay quiet. =)

    You need to show some work. You can't say I'd be guessing and then do nothing. Another mentor consider your comment and give you a warning instead as we can't do your homework for you.
