How does oscillating charge produce electromagnetic waves?

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

A moving charge produces a magnetic field and an oscillating charge, therefore produces an oscillating magnetic field, which, in turn, produces an oscillating emf. An oscillating voltage (emf) produces an oscillating electric field. In this way, an oscillating charge produces an electromagnetic wave.
