There's sooo much going on today. I'm back in the lab again, but I'm also studying for the last little bit of my EM II class. Here are the EM notes for today. Hopefully, I'll get a lab book up again in the morning.

Looking at the Leinard-Wiechert Potentials.

We'll have a particel mofin along hte path $\vec{r} = \vec{r_o}\left(t\right)$. There is a quite lengthy explanation of IRFs, but I'll skip that for now and keep careful track of whether or not this comes back to bite me in the butt. We define $\vec{R}\left(t^\prime\right) = \vec{r} - \vec{r_0}\left(t\right)$ which is the vector from the point charge at time $t^\prime$ to the observatin poitn $\left(\vec{r}, t\right)$. This gives us a retarded time, $t^\prime$ determined by $t - t^\prime = R\left(t^\prime\right)$, where $R\left(t^\prime\right) = |\vec{R}\left(t^\prime\right)|$. This makes far more sense if you translate one of the ever present ever invisible $1$s to a c to get $c\left(t - t^\prime…
