Electromagnetic Waves

  1. Oct 11, 2005 #1
    A plane electromagnetic wave is incident from a higher index medium on a lower index medium at an angle that is greater than the critical angle.
    a) For the case of s polarized electric field, obtain an expression for the complex transmitted electric field vector, (E).
    b) For the case of s polarized electric field, obtain an expression for the complex transmitted magnetic field vector, (H).

    For this, could I just say that E = Eo e^i(kr-wt) and H = Ho e^i(kr-wt) or do I have to do something with the expression?

    You need to start by carefully reading this section in your book and then making an attempt at the problem. It's clear that you haven't done that, or else you wouldn't ask the question that you asked. We're happy to help, but no one here has time to teach you from scratch.
