Electricfield, Magnetic Field and Photon

We know that photon has no charge. Then where from it gets electric and magnetic field in light?
Malik Sajad asks
Answer:
Electric and magnetic fields are not produced by the photon; it is massless too.
But, photon is created by time varying electric a…

Solution to HC Verma Problem

“Referring to HC Verma Part 2, chapter 29, Electric field and potential, Q 69 I think that Force is inversely proportional to square of the distance between the charged particles, so acceleration is not constant and hence v*v  =  u*u  + 2*a*s   is not valid in this case. […]

Electric field inside a dielectric

Why does the electric field inside a dielectric decrease when it is placed in an external electric field? (Thushara asked) Answer: The net electric field inside a dielectric decreases due to polarization. The external electric field polarizes the dielectric and an electric field is produced due to this polarization. This internal electric field will be […]
