The average intensity of sunlight reaching the earth is 1390 W/m^2. A charge of 2.6 x 10^-8 C is placed in the path of this electromagnetic wave. (a) What is the magnitude of the maximum electric force that the charge experiences? (b) If the charge is moving at a speed of 3.7 x 10^4 m/s, what is the magnitude of the maximum magnetic force that the charge could experience?
The solution is step by step explaining electromagnetic waves. The magnitude of the maximum magnetic force was calculated. The solution is in two forms, PDF and word to accommodate your preferences.
