Number of pages: 264

Description:
We begin by discussing waves in matter - sound being a special case. To understand the nature of light we begin by introducing Electric and Magnetic fields and build the relationships which develop into what are arguably among the most powerful equations in Physics: Maxwell's Electromagnetic Field Equations.
