I'm hoping that someone can descripe to me the steps involved in showing(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

E = (Ex,Ey,0),where Ex=f(z-ct)+g(z+ct) and Ey=F(z-ct)+G(z+ct),is a plane wave solution to the wave equation

(∇^2)E-[1/(c^2)](∂^2)E/∂(t^2) = 0

maxwell's wave equation if it's impossible to reat that!
