The Reformulation of Faraday's Law Using Electric Displacement Instead of Electric Field

Authors: Krishna Srinivasan

In 1864, James Clerk Maxwell formulated a set of electromagnetic equations to describe the interactions between electric and magnetic fields, now known as Maxwell's equations in his honor. In this paper, it will be shown using a thought experiment, Faraday's law formulated using electric displacement, instead of electric field, is a better formulation, consistent with the definitions of electric field and electric displacement. Maxwell's equations will be reformulated to satisfy the constituent relations, reflecting the change in the formulation of Faraday's law.
