Homework Help: Find TM waves mode in a rectangular waveguide

  1. Jan 7, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    As you see my solution I found TM(5 , 2.5) that is incorrect because n should be integer not float number.In Addition when I check book solution I found TM mode is TM(2,1)
    what is my mistake?

    Hi baby_1,

    Have you checked the errata for the edition of the book you are using. Seems to me there is a typo in their problem statement (which doesn't even tell you what units to use for the coordinates [itex]x[/itex] and [itex]y[/itex]. What textbook is this from?
