How electromagnetic waves are a natural outcome of the principles of electromagnetism?


A magnetic field will generate from a changing electric field. Similarly, an electric field will generate from a changing magnetic field. These two things are the principles of electromagnetism. So, if an electric field which is oscillating is produced somewhere, this will generate a magnetic field which is oscillating, since the direction of electric field changes repeatedly. But this magnetic field which is oscillating will produce an electric field which is oscillating...
