# Maxwell's Equations/Maxwell-Faraday Equation

(Redirected from Maxwell-Faraday Equation)

## Physical Law

$\nabla \times \mathbf E = -\dfrac {\partial \mathbf B} {\partial t}$

where:

$\nabla \times \mathbf E$ denotes the curl of the electric field $\mathbf E$
$\dfrac {\partial \mathbf B} {\partial t}$ denotes the partial derivative of the magnetic flux density $\mathbf B$ with respect to time.

## Source of Name

This entry was named for James Clerk Maxwell and Michael Faraday.
