Solution

A plane electromagnetic wave with frequency of 30 MHz travels in free space. At particular point in space and time, electric field is 6 V/m. The magnetic field at this point will be x × 10-8 T. The value of x is 2.

Explanation:

Given,

Electric field, E = 6V/m

For an electromagnetic wave, the relationship between the electric field and the magnetic field is given by

|B| = `|"E"|/"c"` 

= `6/3xx10^8`

= 2 × 10-8 T

∴ x = 2 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
