1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A long, thin steel wire is cut in half, and each half is connected to a different terminal of a light bulb. An electromagnetic plane wave with E and B moves past the wire as shown. Part B: Suppose the wire were oriented parallel to the y-axis, as shown above. WOuld the bulb glow in this case? Explain. Part C: Suppose instead that the wire were positioned as described below. WOuld the brightness of the bulb be greater than, less than, or equal to the brightness that it had in parb b? Explain in each case. (i):The wire is parallel to the y-axis but with its bottom end located on the x-axis (ii):The wire is tilted so that it makes an angle of 40 degrees with respect to the y-axis but is still aprallel to the y-z plane. 2. Relevant equations Conceptual besides the EM wave equations: E = E0sin(kx-ωt)(y-hat) B = B0sin(kx-ωt)(z-hat) 3. The attempt at a solution For part b I said that yes it would light up because it is at a 0 degree angle to the E wave and parallel so that would make it light up. If it were perpendicular then the bulb would not light up. For part c (i) I said that yes it would light up but it would be less than that of the part b brightness because it is perpendicular to the E wave, but half the lenght as described. For part c (ii) I said that the wire would be brighter since it is at a 40 degree angle, but I really don't feel confident with this answer as I was basing it on the degrees only. Thanks for any help!!!
