Maxwell's Equation 3

[Maxwell's equation 3]

x component:

[differential eqn]

For simplicity, assume that Ez = 0. Why? Because it will not affect the physical significance of what I am attempting to reveal about Maxwell's equations here.

Differential Equation 1

[differential eqn]

This is a first-order partial differential equation relating the temporal derivative of one component of B to the spatial derivative of another component of E.
