The generation of an electromagnetic wave is presented using two of Maxwell’s equations and class notes from William K. Hershberger’s 1960, UCLA class on Electromagnetic Theory. The presentation uses a pair of parallel plates as described by Maxwell in deriving the concept of displacement current. The result is lines of flux (defined as displacement current) that radiates out from the parallel plates. The generation of the E and H fields as a function of the displacement current is presented.
