Question

Describe the state of polarization of the waves (a) to (d) written below. Are they linearly polarized? Circularly polarized? Neither?

(a) E = Eo cos (k z – ω t) x – Eo cos (k z – ω t) y

(b) E = Eo cos [2π (z/λ – υ t)] x + Eo cos [2π (z/λ – υ t)] y

(c) E = Eo cos (k z – ω t) x + Eo cos (k z – ω t – π/4) y

(d) E = Eo cos (k z – ω t) x + Eo cos (k z – ω t + π/2) y

x and y are unit vectors

In a certain region of space we have standing electromagnetic
waves formed by the superposition of circularly polarized plane
harmonic waves of equal amplitude propagating in opposite
directions. Use a Jones vector analysis to determine the
polarization for the standing wave in each of the cases below.

Coherent light with wavelength λ passes through narrow slits
separated by a distance d, producing an interference pattern on a
distant screen. Suppose, however, that one slit allows a little
more light through so that the amplitudes of the electric field for
the waves are not equal when they arrive at the screen. Instead,
the electric fields are given by
E 1 ( t ) = 3 E 0 cos ( ω t )
E 2 ( t )...

The function y(x,t) = 0.3 sin( 2 π t -2 π x + π /4) represents
the vertical position of an element of a taut string upon which a

Important Instructions: (1) λ is typed as lambda. (2) Use
hyperbolic trig functions cosh(x) and sinh(x) instead of ex and
e−x. (3) Write the functions alphabetically, so that if the
solutions involve cos and sin, your answer would be
Acos(x)+Bsin(x). (4) For polynomials use arbitrary constants in
alphabetical order starting with highest power of x, for example,
Ax2+Bx. (5) Write differential equations with leading term
positive, so X′′−2X=0 rather than −X′′+2X=0. (6) Finally you need
to simplify arbitrary constants. For...

Your task will be to derive the equations describing the
velocity and acceleration in a polar coordinate
system and a rotating polar vector basis for an object in general
2D motion starting from a general
