(a) From Fig. 332 we find the smaller wavelength in question to be about 515 nm, (b) and the larger wavelength to be approximately 610 nm. (c) From Fig. 332 the wavelength at which the eye is most sensitive is about 555 nm. (d) Using the result in (c), we have 8 14 3.00 10 m/s 5.41 10 Hz 555 nm c f l .

The frequency is the same as the frequency of oscillation of the current in the LC circuit of the generator. That is, f LC 1 2 / , where C is the capacitance and L is the inductance. Thus 1311 CHAPTER 33 l 2 LC c . The solution for L is L Cc l 2 2 2 9 2 2 12 8 2 21 4 550 10 4 17 10 2 998 10 500 10 m F m / s H. c h c hc h . . This is exceedingly small. 6.

(b) Since the wave E r oscillates in the z direction and travels in the x direction, we have B x = B z = 0. So, the oscillation of the magnetic field is parallel to the y axis. (c) The direction (+ x ) of the electromagnetic wave propagation is determined by E B r r . If the electric field points in + z , then the magnetic field must point in the y direction. With SI units understood, we may write ( ) ( ) 15 15 8 9 15 2.0cos 10 / cos 10 3.0 10 6.7 10 cos 10 y m t x c x B B t c x t c 9.
