Homework Help: Hertzian diople, magnetic field and relation to Maxwell's equations

  1. May 3, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show how the given physical magnetic field is consistent with a monochromatic plane wave solution to Maxwell equation

    2. Relevant equations

    > Bphys(t) = B0 sin (2πft) ex

    > B = iB0 exp[i(kz − ωt)] ex.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that field is the real part of maxwells equation but im struggling to find how to can work out how to get from one to the other?
    I also got that ω=2πf and k = ω/c
    Am i heading the right direction?

    What is i (##=\sqrt{-1}##) written in terms of an exponential?
