Page 1 of 1 EE540 (S’ 08) Homework #1 Solutions Problem 7.1 Total number of modes for the given cavity between 0 and 10GHz is approximately N ( ! ) " ( cavityvolume ) = 8 # " (10 " 10 9 ) 3 3(3 " 10 8 ) 3 " (6 " 10 $ 5 ) % 18 modes. (1.2) Then, in order to count the exact number of allowed modes, we have to find all the modes for the given conditions; Only the m or p index of the TE m , p , q mode may be zero, but not both, and only the q index may be zero for the TM mode. Using the following equation, we find the appropriate frequencies listed in the table below ( a = 3 cm, b = 4 cm , and d = 5 cm ) m , p , q =
