1. Homework Statement  2. Homework Equations

3. The Attempt at a Solution

(3) I haven't been able to start this one at all.

(6) I got part a (+45º P-state). I tried to do b and I got [1+i, -i+1] which isn't a polarization state, so I'm not sure what to do with c or if there is some way I can simplify it.

(7) Once again, I got part a. It's of the form E=$$E_{0}$$[$$\widehat{i}$$cos(kz-wt)+$$\widehat{j}$$sin(kz-wt)]
Does the cosine term drop out from the initial conditions?
For b, I'm not sure how to get the magnetic field equation. I know $$\overline{B}$$=($$\overline{K}$$$$\times$$$$\overline{E}$$)/$$\omega$$
But, I'm not sure how that helps me

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What school do you go to, that paper and font, its exactly the same, is there some standard I don't know about?
