# A note on the ‘system-free’ expressions of Maxwell’s equations

@article{Leung2004ANO, title={A note on the ‘system-free’ expressions of Maxwell’s equations}, author={Pak Tao Leung}, journal={European Journal of Physics}, year={2004}, volume={25} }

Expressions for Maxwell's equations independent of the unit system are presented and compared with those given in Jackson's book. Both the cases of electromagnetism in vacuum and in a medium are considered through the introduction of two sets of proportional constants: the set of empirical constants and that of 'conventional constants'. The latter set is needed to account for the different conventions adopted in different unit systems for the definitions of various electromagnetic quantities in… CONTINUE READING
