Electromagnetic Waves and Electric Fields

Suppose a plane electromagnetic wave has a wavelength of 50 m and the electric field vibrates with an amplitude of 22 V/m. Calculate the frequency of the wave, the amplitude of B. Write an expression for B in a the form B=Bo cos(kx-w(omega)t) with numerical values for B0, k, and w. See attachment for better formula representation.


Solution Summary

This solution contains step-by-step calculations to determine the amplitude of the wave by using frequency an wave number values.
