Any graph of an EM wave is a mathematical reproduction of that wave since no one knows what a photon is they can't know the actual path. I will post what I think the photon is under the new theories section.
Hey folks,I'm curious if there's an experimental analog of EM waves to the sine wave graphs that can be produced through measuring sound waves. Of course the frequency of an EM wave can be measured, but has the actual 'trajectory/path' that EM waves make been graphed onto paper? In other words, are the diagrams (i.e. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Onde_electromagnetique.svg) of the graph of an EM wave educated assumptions derived from the general behavior of waves, or are they experimentally derived?BTW, I'm not sure what the policy on posting links to other sites is, but I assumed Wikipedia isn't an issue. Do let me know otherwise.
That's essentially what we do when we see, Geezer!
