Nature of Electromagnetic Waves

When we represent the frequency, amplitude, and wavelength of any electromagnetic radiation on a graph we see a wave like in water. Is this just a geometric representation or do the “packet” aspects of these waves actually move physically like the mathematical representation.

Asked Jack Cassidy

Hope that the following videos explain the concept better

English: Electromagnetic waves can be imagined...
English: Electromagnetic waves can be imagined as a self-propagating transverse oscillating wave of electric and magnetic fields. This diagram shows a plane linearly polarized wave propagating from left to right. The electric field is in a vertical plane and the magnetic field in a horizontal plane. http://weelookang.blogspot.com/2011/10/ejs-open-source-propagation-of.html (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Magnetic field due to current

Right hand rule is a physics principle applied...


A spinning electron creates a magnetic field.But what about an electron inside a current carrying wire electron is spinning around its axis and revolving in loop,both simultaneously.So,what if both the situations contradict (both magnetic fields are in opposite direction ).net M.F. should be zero then. I mean what is the fate of electron in a current carrying wire with respect to its spin?
