What is the approximate magnitude of the electric field in the sunlight? (What you calculate is actually the "root-mean-square" or "rms" magnitude of the electric field, because in sunlight the magnitude of the electric field at a fixed location varies sinusoidally, and the intensity is proportional to E 2 .) 672.293 673 N/C 2. 2/2 points Question: MI3 24.5.X.010 A small laser used as a pointer produces a beam of red light 4 mm in diameter, and has a power output of

What is the magnitude of the electric field in the laser beam? 489.675 490 N/C 3. 2/2 points Question: MI3 24.6.X.011 Since force is dp / dt , the force due to radiation pressure reflected off of a solar sail can be calculated as 2 times the radiative momentum striking the sail per second. In the vicinity of Earth's orbit around the Sun, the energy intensity of sunlight is about 1500 W/m 2 . What is the approximate magnitude of the pressure on the sail? (For comparison, atmospheric pressure is about 10 5 N/m 2 .) 1e-5 1.00e-05 N/m 2 Ch24 HW4 F2010 (Homework) Stefan Coreth PY 208, section 002M, Fall 2010 Instructor: Laura I.

    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.
