Chapter 33 1. In air, light travels at roughly c = 3.0 10 8 m/s. Therefore, for t = 1.0 ns, we have a distance of d ct ( . . 30 10 0 30 8 9 m / s)(1.0 10 s) m. 2. (a) From Fig. 33-2 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. 33-2 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 . (e) The period is (5.41 10 14 Hz) –1 = 1.85 10 –15 s. 3. (a) The frequency of the radiation is f c l 30 10 10 10 6 4 10 4 7 10 8 5 6 3 . ( . )( . . m / s m) Hz.

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

(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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
