Changing Magnetic Field Causes Induced Electric Field

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This is not really a question, just a concept I am trying to understand. I understand changing magnetic field induces an electric field - but how does it do this?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I figure since the changing magnetic field would induce a current in the wire (or loop), the current has a relationship with the induced electric field? I can't seem to figure out what the relationship is though, any ideas? Thanks!

    electric and magnetic fields go together, and are described by maxwell's equations.
