Light-Electromagntic wave

  1. Sep 25, 2007 #1
    well an introductory course on electromagnetic waves starts with lines like
    Light is nothing but electromagnetic wave which themselves are nothing but time varying electric and magnetic fields.
    well does that mean a source of light produces electric and magnetic field in disguise which are varying with time and that in turn gives a sense of vision?
