EM Waves

I The waves are initially produced by the charges on the antenna. The charge

itself produces an E-field and the motion of the charges (current) produces a B-field as

shown at the left.

produces a magnetic field. This is the

nature of the EM waves shown at the left.

• They travel through empty space.

• They always travel at the same constant speed.

• The electric field is always perpendicular to the magnetic field.

• The velocity is perpendicular to both the electric field and the magnetic field.

• The ratio of the peak electric field to the peak magnetic field equals the speed of the waves.

There are a couple of ways to represent these waves that illustrate these properties.

According to Faraday's Law changing magnetic fields make electric fields and according to Ampere's Law

changing electric fields make magnetic fields. This is the essence of the propagation of electromagnetic

waves. The fields produce each other as they change in space and time. All the properties of EM waves

listed above can be explained by applying Maxwell's Equations.

sustaining transverse waves.

Example 1: Show that E = E m sin(kz −ωt) is a wave moving in the positive z direction. Express

k and ω in terms of the wavelength, λ, and the frequency, f and find their relationship to the

velocity.

A graph of E vs. z at t=0 is shown. This is like a photograph of the wave.

Notice that z=λ when kz −ω t = 2π ⇒ kλ− 0 = 2π ⇒ k = . k is called the “wave number.”

Below is a graph of E vs. t at z=0. This is created by standing at one place and measuring E at

different times as the wave moves by.

Since E is negative after a short time, you can see from the graph of E vs. z that the wave must be

moving to the right. If you stand at z=0 and wait for one period, then the wave will have traveled

one full wavelength. The speed of the wave can be found using the definition of speed,

Plugging into the wave equation, 2 = 2 2 ⇒ k = ω ⇒ ω = ck . It works!

If any function of kz±ωt is a solution to the wave equation why do we usually discuss solutions of the

form E = E m sin(kz −ωt) and B = Bm sin(kz −ωt) ?

i

Any function can be written as a linear combination of sine and cosine waves.

Example 4: Find the ratio of the peak electric field to the peak magnetic field.

Recall that earlier we started with Faraday's Law and considered a path in the x-z plane and got the

∂E ∂B

relationship, =− . Using the waves E = E m sin(kz −ωt) and B = Bm sin(kz −ωt) we

∂z ∂t

E ω

get, kE m cos(kz −ωt) = +ωBm cos(kz −ωt ) ⇒ m = = c .

Bm k

All the properties of electromagnetic waves that were stated earlier are consistent with Maxwell's

Equations.

We might suspect that all waves that travel at the speed of light are in fact electromagnetic in nature. For

the most part this turns out to be true. The only essential difference between different types of EM waves

is the wavelength (or frequency).

u = 12 ε o E 2 + 2µ1 o B2 . Therefor E × B must be related to the energy in the waves.

The exact relationship can be found by finding the total energy deposited by an

EM wave landing on surface in a time dt. This energy must equal the energy

density in the waves times the volume they occupy,

A U = uvol ⇒ dU = udV = uAdz = ucAdt . Substituting for u,

µo E × B The Definition of the Poynting Vector

The magnitude of the Poynting vector is power per unit area and it points in the same direction as the

velocity.

The instantaneous power per unit area is, S = µ1o EB = µ1o E mBm sin2 (kz −ωt). Often the average power

per unit area is called the “intensity.” Since the average value of the square of the sine is one half,

E m Bm E m2 cBm2

Example 5: Sunlight strikes earth with an average intensity of 1400W/m2 . Find the peak electric

and magnetic fields.

There are 1400W/m2 landing on the earth which is 1.50x1011 m away. Since the sun radiates EM

waves uniformly in all directions this intensity will be the same over the surface area of a sphere

that is 1.50x1011 m away.

The relationship between the transferred momentum and deposited energy for EM

wave differs from this result by a factor of two. This is because the definition of wave U A
