Electromagnetic Waves [20 Points] A large parabolic solar detector with radius 25.0 m is mounted to a solar probe with total mass 2500 kg which is placed in space near the Earth’s orbit. The solar detector absorbs solar radiation with intensity 1340 W/m 2 . a) Find the amplitude of the electric field for the solar radiation? [5 points] Answer: E = 1005 V/m b) Find the amplitude of the magnetic field for the solar radiation? [4 points] Answer: B = 3.35 μT c) Determine the solar power absorbed by the solar detector. [3 points] Answer: P = 2.63 MW d) Ignoring all gravitational effects, determine the acceleration of the solar probe due to the soar radiation pressure. [4 points] Answer: a = 3.51 x 10 -6 m/s 2 e) Find the probe’s speed as it reaches Mars 7.80 x 10 10 m away. Ignore all gravitational effects and assume the probe starts from rest and the solar intensity remains constant. [4 points] Answer: v = 740 m/s
