Unformatted text preview: lanation: Based on the change in location of the electric field between t0 and t1 , the electromag- At time t = 0, detector 1 detects an electric field in the −x direction. At that instant, what is the direction of the magnetic field at the location of detector 1? Choose the unit vector corresponding to this direction. 1. 1, 0, 0 2. 0, 1, 0 dedow (kfd235) – Ch24-h1 – turner – (56525) 3. −1, 0, 0 4. 0, 0, −1 5. 0, 0, 1 correct 6. 0, −1, 0 Explanation: The direction of propagation is in the direction of E × B , which is in the +y direction. Using the right-hand rule, B must be in the +z direction. 011 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points At what time will detector 2 detect electric and magnetic fields? Remember that c = 3 × 108 m/s. Correct answer: 3.33333 × 10−8 s. The key to this problem is to begin by deciding the direction of the magnetic field. Since the wave is propagating in the −z direction, and the electric field is in the +x direction, the magnetic field must be in...
