2

If an electromagnetic wave has components Ey = E0 sin(kx - ?t) and Bz = B0 sin(kx - ?t), in what direction is it traveling?

Answer #1

If the magnetic field of an electromagnetic wave is in the
+-direction and the electric field of the wave is in the
+-direction, the wave is traveling in the
-x-direction.
-y-direction.
+z-direction.
xy-plane.
-z-direction.

If the electric field in a plane electromagnetic wave is along
the y axis and its component is given
by Em sin(kx + ωt), in SI units, then the magnetic field is along
the z axis and its component
is given by:
A. (Em/c) cos(kx + ωt)
B. −(Em/c) cos(kx + ωt)
C. −(Em/c) sin(kx + ωt)
D. Em cos(kx + ωt)
E. (Em/c) sin(kx + ωt)
how and why b is wrong

Suppose that a right-moving EM wave overlaps with a left-moving
