Given: Electric field amplitude of electromagnetic wave, E0 = 120 N/C

Frequency of electromagnetic wave, v = 50 MHz

(a) Magnitude of magnetic field is given by the following expression:

B0 = E0/c B0 = 40 × 10-8 T

Converting it into nT, we get B0 = 400 nT

Angular frequency can be calculated as follows:

ω = 2πv

where ν is the linear frequency.

ω = 2×3.14×50×106Hz

ω = 314 × 106 rad/s

ω = 3.14 × 108 rad/s

Propagation constant k is given by the following expression:

k = ω /c Wavelength can be calculated by the following expression:

λ = c/v λ = 6 m

(b) The expression for electric field and magnetic field can be written as follows:

Let a wave is propagating in positive x- direction.

Since all the three vectors are mutually perpendicular to each other. The electric field vector will be in positive y- direction and magnetic field vector will be in positive z-direction.

Electric field vector can be expressed in the form of equation as given below: Substituting values in above equation we get

Magnetic field vector can be expressed in form of following equation: Substituting values in above equation we get Rate this question :
