Homework Help: Electromagnetism questions - polarisations and waveguides

  1. May 3, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    These are some general questions I have, related to an old assignment I am looking at.

    1) Discuss the applications of polarisation in:
    a. radio transmission across water
    b. broadcast TV transmission
    c. satellite communication

    2) Explain why a plane electromagnetic wave cannot propagate through a metallic waveguide.

    3) Discuss practice applications of waveguides.

    Those don't look like general questions you came up with. Those look more like a hw problem.

    They are hw problems (hence why it is posted in the hw section of the forum), from various different areas of the module, hence why I said general questions. Sorry for not making that more clear.
