Homework Statement



An electric dipole antenna used to transmit radio waves is oriented vertically. At a point due north of the transmitter, how should a second electric dipole antenna be oriented to serve as a reciever?

Homework Equations



Im not sure if my answer below makes sense, is there a good way to solve this type of problem?


The Attempt at a Solution



The second dipole should be oriented vertically in line with the electric field wave.

Your answer is fine. You want the two antennas to be oriented parallel to each other.
