(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 1.10m long FM antenna is oriented parallel to the electric field of an EM wave. How large must the electric field be to produce a 1.28 mV voltage between the ends of the antenna?

2. Relevant equations

u = EoErms^2

I = uc

Intensity = Power / area

3. The attempt at a solution

I found u to be 1.45E-17 using E0 and Erms of .00128V

Then I found I to be 4.35E-9

Then I found P to be 1.65E-8

I'm not sure I'm using the right equations to find the electric field, I don't really know what variable represents it?
