× EHNote 1 to entry: The flux of the Poynting vector through a closed surface is equal to the electromagnetic power passing through this surface. Note 2 to entry: For a periodic electromagnetic field, the time average of the Poynting vector is a vector the direction of which, with certain reservations, can be considered as being the direction of propagation of electromagnetic energy and the magnitude can be considered as being the average power flux density. | ||
