The permitivity of free space is 8 . 85419 × 10 12 C 2 / N / m 2 . What is Maxwell’s displacement current? Correct answer: 1 . 10447 × 10 7 A. Explanation: Let : ǫ = 8 . 85419 × 10 12 C 2 / N / m 2 , A = 0 . 33 m 2 , and d E dt = 37800 V / m / s , where A is the area and d E dt is the changing rate of the electric field. The displacement current is I D = ǫ A d E dt = ( 8 . 85419 × 10 12 C 2 / N / m 2 ) × ( . 33 m 2 ) (37800 V / m / s) = 1 . 10447 × 10 7 A . 002 0.0 points The electric field in an electromagnetic wave (in vacuum) is described by E = E max sin( k x − ω t ) , where E max = 8 . 6 N / C and k = 9 . 7 × 10 8 m 1 . The speed of light is 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s. Find the amplitude of the corresponding magnetic wave. Correct answer: 2 . 86865 × 10 8 T. Explanation: Let : c = 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s and E max = 8 . 6 N / C . The relation between the magnitude of the electric field and that of the magnetic field for an electromagnetic wave is given by B = E c . Thus, the magnitude of the magnetic wave is B max = E max c = 8 . 6 N / C 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s = 2 . 86865 × 10 8 T . 003 (part 1 of 2) 0.0 points What is the wavelength corresponding to a frequency of 9 × 10 19 Hz of electromagnetic wave in free space? The speed of light is 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s. Correct answer: 3 . 33103 × 10 12 m. Explanation: Let : f = 9 × 10 19 Hz and c = 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s . The relation between frequency and wave length is given by λ = c f = 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s 9 × 10 19 Hz = 3 . 33103 × 10 12 m ....
