A plane electromagnetic wave varies sinusoidally at 98.2 MHz as it travels through vacuum along the positive x direction. The peak value of the electric field is 2.10 mV/m, and it is directed along the positive y direction.

(a) Find the wavelength.
m

(b) Find the period.
ns

(c) Find the maximum value of the magnetic field.
pT

(d) Write expressions in SI units for the space and time variations of the electric field. (x is in meters, and t in seconds.)

 magnitude E = (  ) cos 2π(  x −  t) direction ---Select--- +x −x +y −y +z −z
