Electromagnetic Waves 0 cos( ) x x E E t z ϖ β = - 0 cos( ) x x E E t z ϖ β = - Electric field propagating in the pos-z direction If the conducting medium is aligned with the z-axis, then the voltage drop along the z-axis can be found: 0 sin( ) ( , ) z z X t z V z t E dl E ϖ β β - = - = The argument of the sinusoidal term couples space and time behavior. There is spatial variation along the z-axis related to wavelength, and time variation along the time axis related to the period.
Using the equation for phase velocity we can then compute the wavelength of a frequency traveling through a material. 1 p r r c v f ϖ λ β εμ ε μ = = = = Now let’s compare the wavelength of two frequencies in a 1.5 cm long wire. Spatial variances in voltage at 10 GHz are significant for a 1.5 cm wire.

Plots show spatial variation at a fixed time (t=0) and time variation at a fixed location (z=0) along the medium.
