Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm studying Maxwell's equations at the moment. To solve Maxwell's equations one can introduce scalar- and vectorpotentials and calculate the electric and magnetic field by [tex]E=-\text{grad}\,\Phi-\frac{\partial A}{\partial t}[/tex]

and

[tex]B=\text{rot}\,A[/tex],

respectively.

I have the following question to that: Is the contribution of the time derivative of [tex]A[/tex] in the formula for [tex]E[/tex] due to the electric eddy field that is induced by a time varying magnetic field? If not, how it is possible to calculate the electric eddy field when a time varying magnetic field is given?

Thank you for your help!
