Maxwell Equations

Gauss’s law
Divergence of electric field is proportional to  the charge density inside volume

\LARGE \vec{\nabla}\cdot\vec{E}=\rho/\epsilon_0    This is an abuse of notation

\LARGE \frac{\partial \vec E_{x}}{\partial x}+\frac{\partial \vec E_{y}}{\partial y}+\frac{\partial \vec E_{z}}{\partial z}=\rho/\epsilon_0

\large \iiint_{V} (\nabla\cdot \vec E) \,\,\, dV=\oiint_{S} (\vec{E}\cdot \vec{n}) \, \vec{dS}= \iiint_{V} \rho/\epsilon_0 \,\,\, dV=Q/\epsilon_0      This has  abuse of notation

\iiint_{V} (\frac{\partial \vec E_{x}}{\partial x}+\frac{\partial \vec E_{y}}{\partial y}+\frac{\partial \vec E_{z}}{\partial z}) \,\,\, dV=\oiint_{S} (\vec{E}\cdot \vec{n}) \, \vec{dS}= \iiint_{V} \rho/\epsilon_0 \,\,\, dV=Q/\epsilon_0

    \vec{n} is the outward pointing unit normal at each point on every dS on the boundary  of surface S of Volume V

 

 

 

 

Gauss’s law for magnetism
The magnetic field B has divergence equal to zero. It is equivalent to the statement that magnetic monopoles do not exist.

\LARGE \vec{\nabla}\cdot\vec{B}=0 This is an abuse of notation

\dpi{120} \large \frac{\partial \vec B_{x}}{\partial x}+\frac{\partial \vec B_{y}}{\partial y}+\frac{\partial \vec B_{z}}{\partial z}=0

 

Faraday’s law of induction
A circulating electric field is produced by a magnetic field that changes with time.

Curl of E , the circulation of electric field , around an axis perpendicular to each plane at point (x,y,z) is equal to the rate of change in magnetic field

\LARGE \vec{\nabla}\times \vec{E}=-\frac{\partial \vec{B}}{\partial t} This is an abuse of notation

\dpi{120} \large {\left({\frac {\partial E_{z}}{\partial y}}-{\frac {\partial E_{y}}{\partial z}}\right){\boldsymbol {\hat {\imath }}}+\left({\frac {\partial E_{x}}{\partial z}}-{\frac {\partial E_{z}}{\partial x}}\right){\boldsymbol {\hat {\jmath }}}+\left({\frac {\partial E_{y}}{\partial x}}-{\frac {\partial E_{x}}{\partial y}}\right){\boldsymbol {\hat {k}}}=-\frac{\partial \vec{B}}{\partial t}=-\frac{\partial \vec{B_x}}{\partial t}-\frac{\partial \vec{B_y}}{\partial t}-\frac{\partial \vec{B_z}}{\partial t}

Ampere-Maxwell Law
A circulating magnetic field is produced by an electric current and by an electric field that changes with time.

\LARGE \vec{\nabla}\times \vec{B}=\mu_0\left(\vec{J}+\epsilon_0\frac{\partial \vec{E}}{\partial t}\right) This is an abuse of notation

Curl of B , the circulation of magnetic  field , around an axis perpendicular to each plane at point (x,y,z) is proportional  to the rate of change in Electric field + electrical current

if  J=0 then

\large {\left({\frac {\partial B_{z}}{\partial y}}-{\frac {\partial B_{y}}{\partial z}}\right){\boldsymbol {\hat {\imath }}}+\left({\frac {\partial B_{x}}{\partial z}}-{\frac {\partial B_{z}}{\partial x}}\right){\boldsymbol {\hat {\jmath }}}+\left({\frac {\partial B_{y}}{\partial x}}-{\frac {\partial B_{x}}{\partial y}}\right){\boldsymbol {\hat {k}}}=\mu_0\epsilon_0\frac{\partial \vec{E}}{\partial t}=\mu_0\epsilon_0(\frac{\partial \vec{E_x}}{\partial t}+\frac{\partial \vec{E_y}}{\partial t}+\frac{\partial \vec{E_z}}{\partial t})

Explanations

This relates to electric field in that the charge moving through a circuit to light a light bulb has to be driven by some electric field, so you can reasonably ask how that field is established, and how much time it takes. Qualitatively, the necessary field is established by excess charge on the surface of the wires, with the surface charge being generally positive near the positive terminal of a battery and generally negative near the negative terminal, and dropping off smoothly from one to the other so that the electric field is more or less piecewise constant (that is, the field is the same everywhere inside a wire, and the field is the same everywhere inside a resistor, but the two field values are not the same).

When the circuit is first connected, there is a rapid redistribution of the charge on the surface of the wires which establishes the surface charge gradients that drive the steady-state current that will eventually do whatever it is you want it to do. The time required to establish the gradients and settle in to the steady-state condition is very fast, most likely on the order of nanoseconds for a normal circuit.
