Physical Description of Radio and Microwave Radiation
An understanding of the interaction of radio and microwave radiation with biological systems requires a knowledge of some of the laws describing the characteristics of radio and microwave radiation. The physical processes of radio and microwave radiation are governed by four principles now known as Maxwell’s equations. These equations represent mathematical expressions of experimental observations. From these four principles or laws of electromagnetics, one may deduce with mathematical vigor and exactness, all macroscopic electromagnetic phenomena.
