1. If a charged particle travels in a straight line, can you say that there is no magnetic field in that region of space? Explain. 2. A proton and and electron have the same velocity. What happens if they enter a bending magnet with a magnetic field perpendicular to their velocity?

- Gauss’s law for magnetic fields, except that there are no magnetic monopoles. Magnetic field lines are always continuous.
- Faraday’s law: an electric field is produced by changing magnetic field.

Unformatted text preview: to direction of motion;-fields alternate in direction from point to point;-the electric and magnetic fields are “in phase”. EM waves are produced by accelerating electric charges. Speed of EM Waves 1 μ ε = v Electromagnetic Spectrum Example Calculate the wavelength: (a)Of a 60-Hz EM wave; (b)Of a 93.3 MHz FM radio wave; (c)Of a beam of visible red light from a laser at frequency 4.74x10 14 Hz. 1. Which of the following a/m waves has the highest frequency: radio, microwaves, visible light, ultraviolet light, or X-rays? 2. What is the difference between X rays and gamma rays? 3. Which of the following is not an electromagnetic wave: radio, television, blue light, infrared light, or sound? 4. What does it mean when your local disc jockey says, that “you are listening to radio 1380”?...
