The Circuit and the Pendulum.
- At one point in a electronic resonant Tank Circuit and the current thru and thus the magnetic field of the coil go to zero and the voltage across capacitor are maximum. Thus, the kinetic energy is zero and the potential energy in E field between the plates is maximum.
- At opposite point of the oscillation the voltage across capacitor goes to zero and the current and magnetic flux of the coil are at a maximum. At this point kinetic energy is maximum resides in the magnetic H field of the coil.
- In the vacuum of space electromagnetic energy consisting of E and H fields 180 degrees out of phase propagate thru space at the speed of light.

The Orbit simulator below is a Phet simulation. PHET is an interactive simulation project at the University of Colorado. It is just one of the almost seventy hand picked selection of links this site provides. Don't gravitat to this larger site before book marking this site. It has many more GREAT! links.
