**1. Homework Statement**

The B field of a monochromatic plane wave is

B~=B0~ exp(i(kz-wt)[sqrt(3)/2 x-hat + 1/2 y-hat]

Find E~ in terms of B0~.

and the polarization angle.

**2. Homework Equations**

We know E~=Eo~ exp(i(k.r-wt)nhat

B~=B0~ exp(i(k.r-wt)(k-hat x n-hat)

nhat = cos(theta)xhat + sin(theta)yhat

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Would have been trivial if given E instead of B.

What do I do?
