P30 - 2 MIT Class: Electromagnetic Waves

P30 - 3 Maxwell’s Equations 0 0 Solve in free space (no charge/current) to get…

P30 - 5 A Question of Time…

P30 - 6 Electromagnetic Waves: Plane Waves

P30 - 7 Traveling Waves Consider f(x) = x=0 What is g(x,t) = f(x-vt)? x=0 t=0 x=vt 0 t=t 0 x=2vt 0 t=2t 0 f(x-vt) is traveling wave moving to the right!

P30 - 8 Traveling Sine Wave: Space Look at t = 0: g(x,0) = y = y 0 sin(kx): x Amplitude (y 0 ) What is g(x,t) = f(x+vt)? Travels to left at velocity v y = y 0 sin(k(x+vt)) = y 0 sin(kx+kvt)

P30 - 11 Electromagnetic Waves Remember: Hz

P30 - 12 Electromagnetic Radiation: Plane Waves Watch 2 Ways: 1) Sine wave traveling to right (+x) 2)Collection of out of phase oscillators (watch one position) Don’t confuse vectors with heights – they are magnitudes of E (gold) and B (blue)

P30 - 13 Traveling EM Wave: Space At a fixed time (e.g. t=0): x Amplitude (E 0 )

P30 - 14 Traveling EM Wave: Time Amplitude (E 0 ) At x=0, just a function of time:

P30 - 16 PRS Question: Wave

P30 - 17 PRS: Wave The graph shows a plot of the function y = cos(k x). The value of k is (m) :00 1.½ m -1 2.¼ m -1  m -1  /2 m -1 5.I don’t know

P30 - 18 PRS Answer: Wave = 4 m  k = 2  / =  /2 m -1 y = cos (  x /2) is 1 at x = –4 m, 0 m, 4 m, etc. Answer: 4. k =  /2 m -1 (m)

P30 - 19 Properties of EM Waves Travel (through vacuum) with speed of light At every point in the wave and any instant of time, E and B are in phase with one another, with E and B fields perpendicular to one another, and to the direction of propagation (they are transverse):
