Zahid Iftikhar asked why charges get separated in a changing magnetic field over in the EE forum. I pointed him to Maxwell's equations and also pointed out we took them to be observational and axiomatic.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Yet it occurred to me there might be an reason in quantum probability.

So is there a reason a time varying magnetic field produces an electric field and vice versa? (Of course I understand that any quantum explanation will also be predicated on observation, so it's at best part of the answer, but I'm curious. It's one of my vices.)
