Solutions to the differential equation in Smith's Prize Examination taken by Maxwell are discussed. It was a competitive examination using which skill full students were identified and James Clerk Maxwell was one of them. He later formulated the theory of Electromagnetism and predicted the light speed & its value was subsequently confirmed by experiments. Light travel in a direction perpendicular to oscillating electric and magnetic field through a vacuum from sun. In the same exam paper,
