Equations related with wave propagation are reexamined as in certain circumstances law of conservation of energy is not fulfilled even though it is cautiously clarified with the help of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. Recently, attempt has also been made to understand certain discrepancies in optical phenomena like diffraction or interference. The purpose of the present investigation, therefore, is to overcome some discrepancies by introducing constants of integration in Maxwell’s Equation. It turns out that the presence of vibrating strings (or store energy) in the medium becomes essential to understand several details of the wave propagation.
