If the wave field varies at x = 0 according to E y (0 ,t ) = 12Δ ( t τ ) V / m , where Δ ( t τ ) is the unit triangle function with width τ = 4 μ s , we can find that a) The wave’s electric field is given by E ( x,t ) = 12Δ( t + x/c τ ) ˆ y V m , where c ≈ 3 × 10 8 m / s is the wave propagation velocity in vacuum. b) The associated wave’s magnetic field is H ( x,t ) = 12 η o Δ( t + x/c τ ) ˆ z A m , where η o ≈ 120 π Ω is the intrinsic impedance of vacuum. c) The Poynting vector is E × H = 144 η o Δ 2 ( t + x/c τ ) ˆ x W m 2 and its pick value is max(  E × H  ) = 144 η o ≈ 6 5 π W m 2 . d) The location of the peak of E × H evolves according to t + x/c τ = 0 → x = ct. e) Plotting E y vs t at x = 1500 m .
