1. The electrical field component of an EM wave is given by E o exp[j(kz - ω t)]. Prove that the phase velocity is ω /k. The phase velocity is the velocity of the wavefront of constant phase, i.e., kz ω t = constant. One way to imagine a wavefront is to look at the waves on the surface of water and see how the wavefronts (peaks) move or propagate. In doing so, you need to be aware that the wave on the water surface is a surface acoustic wave; it is not an EM wave. 2. The Poynting vector, E x H, gives the instantaneous energy flux carried by an EM wave. The energy flux is energy per cross section area per second. For an EM wave having electrical field component of E = (1, 0, 0) E o cos(kz - ω t), find H. Furthermore, derive < E x H> and express it in terms of η and E o only, here

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
