Changing fields

  1. Oct 29, 2011 #1
    A changing magnetic field creates a non conservative electric field. If the changing magnetic field is accelerating(2nd derivative in non-zero) the electric field must also be changing. Would this mean that the changing electric field is producing a magnetic field.

    Depending on the order of derivative this could continue indefinitely.

    B=e^t for example.....

    Sure, that's the way that electromagnetic waves work!
