It is fairly easy to produce a static magnetic field of 0.050T in the lab. If an EM wave could be produced with maximum magnetic field, Bo = 0.050T
a) what would be the rate of energy transfer (W/m2) ?
b) what would the corresponding maximum electric field be?
Note * Air "breaks down" at E = 3 x 10^6 V/m, that is sparks will jump across such a field.
B= E / c
c = speed of light in vacuum
The Attempt at a Solution
0.050T (3.0 x 10^8 m/s) = 1.5 x 10^7 (electric field ?)
