Why is the speed of light what it is Maxwell equations visualized

Why is the maximum speed of the universe the speed of light? Maxwell’s equations explained and visualized. Why is light so fast? What is light made of? Almost all modern technology is based on Maxwell’s equations.

Not only do they describe every electrical and magnetic phenomenon, but hidden within these equations is a fundamental truth about the nature of light, and why it is the ultimate speed of the universe. We are going to visualize the equations with graphics.

Objects have something called a charge. This is a property of matter like mass is a property of matter. If you have a static object with a charge, it will affect only other charges. And if you have a static magnet, it will affect only other magnets. But if you have a moving charge, it will affect a magnet. And if you have a moving magnet, it will affect a charge. That’s what the four equations are telling us.

The fourth equation is Ampere’s law. It says that if you have moving charge through a wire, or an electrical current, you generate a magnetic field. This requires a constant of nature called mu naught. This is the permeability of free space. This is the ability of free space to allow magnetic lines of force to go through it. Note that there are two terms in this equation, one term tells you the moving electrical charges can create magnetic fields, and the second term tells you that moving electrical fields can also create magnetic fields. This idea of magnetic fields being created from electric fields was Maxwell’s addition to Ampere’s law.
