Name: _______________________ Instructor:__________________ Louisiana State University Physics 2102, Final Exam, May 9, 2008. Please be sure to write your name and class instructor above. The test consists of 6 questions (conceptual), and 6 problems (numerical). For the problems: Show your reasoning and your work. Note that in many of the problems, you can do parts (b) and (c) even if you get stuck on (a) or (b). You may use scientific or graphing calculators, but you must derive and explain your answer fully on paper so we can grade your work. Feel free to detach, use, and keep the formula sheet pages. No other reference material is allowed during the exam. Good Luck!

(a) Toward the left (b) Toward the right (c) Upward (d) Downward (iii) What is the direction of the magnetic field at point P? (a) Upward (b) Downward (c) Into the page (d) Out of the page
Problem 1 [22 points] A plane electromagnetic wave propagates in the +y direction. The magnetic field associated with the wave oscillates in the x direction, and has a peak magnitude of 3.6 x 10 -8 T? The frequency of the wave is 3.902 MHz. (a) (3 pts) In which direction does the electric field oscillate? (b) (3 pts) In which direction does the Poynting vector point? (c) (3 pts) Calculate the peak magnitude of the electric field: (d) (3 pts) Calculate the wavelength of the wave: (e) (5 pts) Calculate the peak magnitude of the Poynting vector: (f) (5 pts) Calculate the time averaged rate of flow of energy (in W/m 2 ):

### 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.
