We will rewrite the

H you double the B and so) D  E replace D and B with
-Homogeneous (same )  

 Differential equation that governs voltage
and current propagating in
transmission line (Telegrapher’s Eq.)
 This physically means that a constant velocity wave is
propagating in every direction i.e. x, y, and z.
 Physically it means that imagine if I make
electromagnetic disturbance in 3D space, the waves
propagate in all directions at a constant velocity just like
if I throw a rock into a 3D surface of a pond, the ripple
is carried in all directions at a constant velocity.
 Solution to this differential equation depends upon
boundary conditions.
 Single most important solution to this equation is Plane
Wave. 10
Plane Wave
Plane Wave is one example to solutions of HWE. It is useful
solution for couple of reasons;
1. Mathematically simple equation.
2. In real life, how an antenna make a wave, you slash
current up and down which changes the E field and the
H field, couples them together and that causes an
electromagnetic disturbance to travel away from the
antenna. You can treat it around the antenna as a
perfect spherical wave. Once it travels far enough to a
receiving antenna the wave received is almost a plane
wave.
