### Evaluation of Curl of E

### Maxwell's Equation 3

*x* component:

For simplicity, assume that E_{z} = 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

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**.
