Alternating Current Circuits and Electromagnetic Waves 223 (b) The intensity of an electromagnetic wave is proportional to the square of its amplitude. If 67% of the incident intensity of the red light is absorbed, then the intensity of the emerging wave is ( ) 100% 67% 33% = of the incident intensity, or 0.33 f i I = I . Hence, we must have max, max, 0.33 f f i i E I E I = = 0.57 = 21.46 If I is the incident intensity of a light beam, and I is the intensity of the beam after passing through length L of a fluid having concentration C of absorbing molecules, the Beer-Lambert law states that 0 ( ) 10 0 log I I CL ε = − where ε is a constant. For 660-nm light, the absorbing molecules are oxygenated hemoglobin. Thus, if 33% of this wavelength light is transmitted through blood, the concentration of oxygenated hemoglobin in the blood is ( ) 10 2 log 0.33 HBO C L ε = ( [1] The absorbing molecules for 940-nm light are deoxygenated hemoglobin, so if 76% of

### 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.
