Homework Help: Cylindrical cavity resonator problem

  1. Mar 15, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Q. A cylindrical cavity resonator has diameter of 24 mm and length 20 mm. The dominant mode and the lowest frequency band are operated as ? I am providing a picture of problem to show the options given to me.

    I solved the problem by calculating resonant frequency for cavity resonator and my answer is coming to be (a).

    But on considering the condition " TM110 mode is dominant where 2a > d , and that the TE111 mode is dominant when d > 2a. My answer is coming to be (d).
    Then which one should I consider of two options.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am providing pictures of my work below.
