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

question about Maxwell equations:

a linear restoring force causes simple harmonic motion. In Maxwell equations, what is this restoring force due to? In mechanics to mass and stiffness. do self inductance and capacitance the inertia and the stiffness?

HElmholtz eqn resembles the equation for the spatial simple harmonic oscillator.

thanks!
