At a certain point in space, at a certain instant of time, the magnetic ﬁeld of a light wave points in the + x—direction and is given by BX 2 EM cos(kz + car). In which / y E direction does the wave travel? In which direction does the associated electric field X point? (2 pts.) B Direction wave travels: — z direction Direction of E: + y direction CD 2. The Earth (radius 6.4 X 106 m) orbits the Sun (power 3.83 X 1026 J/s) in a (roughly) circular orbit of radius 1.5 X 10“ 1n. Assuming that the Earth absorbs 60% of the incident solar radiation and reflects 40%, what force does the Sun’s radiation exert on the Earth? Be sure to include units with your answer.
