©AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.4-2 Overview In this class we will introduce a way of describing the propagation of EM waves in arbitrary directions in space through the use of the wave-vector k . This will allow us to calculate the magnitude of the electric and magnetic fields at any location. These plane waves are described as transverse electromagnetic (TEM) waves. This is an important concept which will arise many times during the course.

### 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.
