Propagation constant is given as:
Wavelength of wave is given as:
(b) Suppose the wave is propagating in the positive x direction. Then, the electric field vector will be in the positive y direction and the magnetic field vector will be in the positive z direction. This is because all three vectors are mutually perpendicular.
Equation of electric field vector is given as:
And, magnetic field vector is given as:
