Detailed Solution for Propagation Of EM Waves And Gauge Transformation MCQ Level - 1 - Question 1

Propagation Of EM Waves And Gauge Transformation MCQ Level - 1 - Question 2

The electric field for a plane electromagnetic wave traveling in the positive z-direction is represented by which one of the following? Where,  are the unit vectors along x, z-directions respectively.

Detailed Solution for Propagation Of EM Waves And Gauge Transformation MCQ Level - 1 - Question 2

The wave travelling along Z-axis can be written as, displacement
+ sign along –ve Z-axis
– sign along +ve Z-axis
Since, the electric field is perpendicular to the different of the wave, i.e., perpendicular to Z-axis i.e., along X-axis or along Y-axis. Thus,
