EM Waves

Impedance of RLC circuit, electromagnetic wave and radiation pressure

1) Under what conditions is the impedance in an LRC circuit a minimum? 2) At a given instant in time, a traveling electromagnetic wave is noted to have its maximum magnetic field pointing west and its maximum electric field pointing south. In what direction is the wave traveling? If the rate of energy flow is 500W/m^2, wh

Superposition of Waves

The broadcast antenna of an Am radio station is located at the edge of town. The station owners would like to beam all of the energy into town and none into the countryside, but a single antenna radiates energy equally in all directions. The attached figure shows two parallel antennas separated by a distance L. Both antennas bro


It takes light 20 min to travel from Mars to Earth. How might this affect a conversation between an astronaut on Mars and people on Earth? Explain. Suppose an ultra-powerful telescope were used for visual communication. Would this telescope speed things up? Why?

Wave length/frequency/speed of sound & EM waves

(See attached file for full problem description) --- 20.25 Part A : At 20 degree C, what is the frequency of a sound wave in air with a wavelength of 17.0 cm ? Part B : What is the frequency of an electromagnetic wave with a wavelength of 17.0 cm ? Part C : What would be the wavelength of a sound wave in water t

Electromagnetic waves

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 m

Child Development and Families in Transition

1. If a child's temperament is not a good "fit" with the temperament of is caregiver, how can this slow down his socialization? 2. How do a person's peers socialize him? 3. What are the three broad categories of temperament people can have? 4. List several of the rather scary, ecological trends of society that challeng

Skin Depth in Sea Water

I'm working on this sample problem and am totally lost. "A vehicle located far above the survace of the sea transmits an electro-magnetic signal at the frequency f ..." (see attachment for complete problem - thanks!)

EM waves passing through the axon

The axon of the neuron, the nerve cell of the human body, has a diameter of approximately 0.2 microns. how long does it take for EM waves to pass through the axon? (Assuming EM can pass through it.) How many cycles of EM waves occur during the above passage, using 1.50 x 10 to the 23rd power Hz.

Problems you encounter with radio mic's in theatres(eg inter-modulation)

The theatre is putting on a new musical and they are changing from traditional rifle microphones to radio microphone system. The theatre has some concerns over doing this, they are: transmitter operation with regard to power supplies, inter-modulation problems and choice of transmitter frequency band and output power.
