EM waves

Postby Nikita Patra 3J » Sun Oct 13, 2019 1:56 pm

Are EM waves the energy itself or the disturbance in electromagnetic field caused by energy (like throwing a stone into a pond and wave forms)?

Electromagnetic waves are the result of a disturbance in the electromagnetic field.

It's the disturbance.

Despite lacking mass, the release of a photon and its inherent energy results in a change in the magnetic field of the surrounding area. In QM, energy released by a photon is directly linked to a change in the magnetic field along the path of the ejected photon.
