1. Homework Statement
Show how the given physical magnetic field is consistent with a monochromatic plane wave solution to Maxwell equation

2. Homework Equations

Physical:
> Bphys(t) = B0 sin (2πft) ex

Maxwells:
> 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?
