Maxwell’s equations represent one of the most elegant and concise ways to state the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism. These equations describe the interaction of electromagnetism with mathematical elegance.
If there’s anything God would’ve said at the moment of creation, it would be these four equations. (Possibily in integral form, I have a feeling God likes that a little more)
Interesting fact: using some calculus, we can show that the electric and magnetic fields obey wave equations! As Maxwell put it, “We can scarcely avoid the conclusion that light consists in the transverse undulations of the same medium which is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena.”
c can also be derived from Maxwell’s equations! Try it at home, you know, for fun.
