2 1. A plane light wave of frequency and wave number k (k = 2 π /¬), propagating in the positive z direction. a. If the electric field is in the ˆ X direction with amplitude E 0 what is the direction of the magnetic field? b. If the amplitude of the electric field is 30 volts/m what is the amplitude of the magnetic field? c. What is the average value of the energy flux striking a disk of radius 2 m? d. If the wave is reflected, what is the average force on the disk? a. B is in the ˆ y direction. b. B = E c , B = 30 3 ! 10 8 = 10 " 7 Tesla . c. S = E ! B μ 0 = 1 2 " 0 0 E 2 = 1 2 1 377 30 2 = 1.19 W / m 2 Average power flux striking the disk = 4 ! " S = 15 Watts d. The average pressure is 2 S c . The total force is Pressure X area = 2 ! 15 3 ! 10 8 = 10 " 7 N
