The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10 points To demonstrate the generation of electromag netic waves due to oscillations of a current sheet in the yzplane at x = 0, one first con siders the following situation. One turns on a steady current flow along the negative yaxis at t = 0. p z I x y The point P is along the negative x direction. Let ~ B and ~ E be the magnetic and electric field established at P soon after the switching on of the current, respectively. The directions of ~ B and ~ E are 1. ~ B is along the negative yaxis, ~ E is along the positive zaxis. 2. ~ B is along the negative zaxis, ~ E is along the positive zaxis. 3. ~ B is along the positive yaxis, ~ E is along the positive zaxis. 4. ~ B is along the positive zaxis, ~ E is along the negative yaxis. 5. ~ B is along the positive yaxis, ~ E is along the negative zaxis. 6. ~ B is along the positive zaxis, ~ E is along the positive yaxis. 7. ~ B is along the negative zaxis, ~ E is along the positive yaxis. correct 8. ~ B is along the negative zaxis, ~ E is along the negative yaxis. 9. ~ B is along the negative yaxis, ~ E is along the positive yaxis. 10. ~ B is along the negative yaxis, ~ E is along the negative zaxis. Explanation: Basic Concepts Electromagnetic waves. Since the current on the sheet is flowing along the negative yaxis, the magnetic field for neg ative values of x is directed along the negative zaxis. x y O O z P P E E B B B A C D About point P we may construct a rectan gular window ABCDA in the xyplane. As the front of the Bfield sweeps across the window to the left, it causes a counterclock wise induced emf, which is generated by the induced emf at the right side of the window from D to A . Since the side DA can be placed at any location between O and P , when the Bfield reaches P , there is a companion E field stretched out from D to A . Notice that the electromagnetic wave is traveling along the negative xaxis, so ~ E has to be directed along the positive yaxis (so that ~ E ~ B is directed along the correct direction). Flores, Michael Homework 13 Due: Apr 27 2004, 4:00 am Inst: Sonia Paban 2 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points Now consider the current sheet which under goes the sinusoidal oscillations with a definite frequency where the amplitude of the mag netic field oscillations in the waves is B max . Consider a book of area A located at P paral lel to the yz plane. Find the radiation force on the book, if it absorbs one third of the light....
