Vector Potential

The Physics of Vector Potentials

The use of vector potentials offers us a powerful tool in understanding how electromagnetic fields radiate and how they interact with their surroundings. Here we show vector potentials from a small wire element. We discuss vector potentials in “A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer, Chapter 2.”
