term is undefined.

## Because of these undefined terms, TM01 and TM10 are not

supported by a rectangular waveguide
B) Explain the difference between TEmn and TMmn modes
In TM modes, the magnetic field has its components transverse
(or normal) to the direction of wave propagation. This implies
that we set H z=0.
In TE modes, the electric field is transverse (or normal) to the
diection of wave propagation. We set E z=0.
