Today it was revealed that James Clerk Maxwell’s electric field theory is all wrong!
Maxwell had stated, “Before I began the study of electricity I resolved to read no mathematics on the subject until I had first read [Faraday].”
There was one major problem—-Faraday had dyslexia! His memory played tricks on him and he could not handle mathematics well; however, he did have a powerful visual sense. Faraday could build a mental picture of lines of force, filling space, shaping themselves in arrays.
So, all of Maxwell’s equations need to be reversed! For example, in Gauss’ Law for electric fields, we would have the integral of A dot E instead of E dot A = q/ε0
So, all current and magnetic field directions are the reverse of what we were taught in engineering courses. Text book will have to be re-written, curriculum changed, and all physical phenomena needs to be re-evaluated in electric and magnetic field theory!
Just kidding—April Fool!!!!!
But Faraday WAS Dyslexic!
