The general formula for a EM wave (solving for the E field) is: where $\varepsilon = \varepsilon _{r}+j\frac{\sigma }{\omega }$ My professor told me that the conductivity of vacuum is 0 so we...

Maxwell's first law in differential form states that $$ \triangledown \cdot E = \frac{\rho}{\epsilon_{o}} $$ . In case of 1d can we say that $$\rho = \lambda$$ where $$\lambda$$ is the linear char...
