- Electrostatic waves in plasma with no B produced?
I’m having A bit of confusion regarding this. In a plasma by turning on an electric field ,wouldn’t this cause an oscillation of the electrons about the ions,effectively a oscillating dipole thus inducing a magnetic field, by amperes law? My text (plasma physics by F.Chen )has curlE =0 I’m not seeing how no magnetic field is created in electrostatic waves. Thanks for any help. Jack
