Electromagnetics problem

  1. Apr 22, 2005 #1
    H = 30 sin ( 2*pi*10^8*t - 5*x) in the z direction milli-amp/meter.
    First question is if μr = 1, find εr.

    H is the magnetic part of a plane wave in a lossless dielectric.
    I dont see any way to find εr from the information thats been given.

    What is the speed of the wave? How does the speed relate to the dielectric constant?

    just had a thought, if the square root of μr*εr = 5, than μr = 25 correct?

    I think you mean εr, and if μr is 1, then that is obviously true.

    i mean, thats the answer to the question right?
