Lecture 13: Electromagnetic Waves - Plane Wave Solutions to Maxwell's Equations - Polarization - Malus' Law

This video was recorded at MIT 8.03 Physics III: Vibrations and Waves - Fall 2004. In addition to the traditional topics of mechanical vibrations and waves, coupled oscillators, and electro-magnetic radiation, students will also learn about musical instruments, red sunsets, glories, coronae, rainbows, haloes, X-ray binaries, neutron stars, black holes and big-bang cosmology. OpenCourseWare presents another version of 8.03 that features a full set of lecture notes and take-home experiments. OpenCourseWare also presents Professor Lewin's freshman physics course series 8.01 – Newtonian Mechanics - with a complete set of 35 video lectures from the Fall of 1999 and 8.02 - Electricity and Magnetism - with a complete set of 36 video lectures from the Spring of 2002.
