## Homework Statement

⃑E = E

_{o}cos(4.0y−1.2 × 10

^{9}t) ̂ (N/C)

where y is in meters and t is in seconds. The intensity of the wave is 200 mW/cm2 .

(a) In what direction is the wave propagating? (b) What are the wavelength and frequency of the wave? (c) What is the peak value of the electric field, 0, of the wave? (d) Find the magnetic field, ⃑⃑⃗(⃗,), of the wave. (e) Find an expression for the Poynting vector ⃑⃗(⃗,)

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Do not know where to begin with this one, I cannot find any useful help related to anything similar to this question online, not even in my professors lectures. If anyone can just help me begin here I would appreciate it greatly. I understand the E-field is going in the x direction, but how can I visualize that? I also understand that the propagation is ExB.
