This is maddening and i cannot find a concise explaination anywhere despite the simplicity of this question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I keep coming across faradays law expressed as

[tex] \text{curl}\left(\mathbf{E}\right) = -\frac{1}{C^2} \frac{\partial\mathbf{B}}{\partial t}

[/tex]

Im only used to working in SI units so all i can do is guess that this is expressed in gaussian units?

and

[tex] \text{curl}\left(\mathbf{E}\right) = -\frac{1}{C} \frac{\partial\mathbf{B}}{\partial t}

[/tex]

Can anyone explain these 2 different expressions of faradays law?
