Unformatted text preview: ECE 329 Fall 2010 Homework 8 - Solution Due: Nov. 2, 2010 1. a) We check the value of . For 10 7 6 f 6 5 10 9 , ranges from 1 . 44 10 8 to 7 . 19 10 10 . So the lossy medium can be regarded as good conductor. b) We assume the wave propagates in the lossy medium from point B to A , and the magnitude of the electric eld at these two observation points are E B and E A . Consider the attenuation constant , we know E A = e- d E B , where d denotes the distance between B and A . As for the time-average power, we have P A = e- 2 d P B . If we choose d as unit length, then the attenuation of the time-average power (in dB) will be 10log 10 P A P B = 10log 10 ( e- 2 ) =- 2 10log 10 ( e ) =- 8 . 686 . c) Based on b), we know the attenuation in dB per unit length is- 8 . 686 . Also, the de nition of the skin depth is = 1 . Therefore, the attenuation in dB per skin depth is- 8 . 686 =- 8 . 686 , a constant irrelevant to frequency. d) We know the penetration depth of low-frequency component is larger than that of high-frequency component. As a result, we only need to make the lossy material layer thick enough to screen all the low-frequency components. The attenuation required by the problem is 20log 10 10- 6 . 1 =- 100 ( dB ) . At the low-end frequency, p f = p 10 7 1 . 25663706 10- 6 4 10...
