Polarization Light is a transverse electromagnetic wave that can be seen by a typical human. Wherever light goes, the electric and magnetic fields are disturbed perpendicular to the direction of propagation. This propagating disturbance is what makes light a wave. The fact that the electric and magnetic fields are disturbed makes light an electromagnetic wave. The fact that it disturbs these fields at right angles to the direction of propagation makes light a transverse wave. In this section we will explore what it means to be transverse.
Inverters: Modified sine wave vs. Pure sine wave The main difference between pure sine wave and modified sine wave inverters is that the former produces a better and cleaner current. They’re more expensive, but for good reason. So what are the advantages? There are several: a) Output voltage wave form is pure sine wave with very low harmonic distortion and clean power like utility-supplied electricity. b) Inductive loads like microwave ovens and motors run faster, quieter and cooler with pure sine.
