QUESTION: 1

### For a dielectric, the condition to be satisfied is

Solution:

Explanation: In a dielectric, the conductivity will be very less. Thus the loss tangent will be less than unity. This implies σ/ωε < 1 is true.

QUESTION: 2

### For a perfect dielectric, which parameter will be zero?

Solution:

Explanation: The conductivity will be minimum for a dielectric. For a perfect dielectric, the conductivity will be zero.

QUESTION: 3

### Calculate the phase constant of a wave with frequency 12 rad/s and velocity 3×108 m/s(in 10-8 order)

Solution:

Explanation: The phase constant is given by β = ω√(με), where ω is the frequency in rad/s and 1/√(με) is the velocity of wave. On substituting √(με) = 3×108 and ω = 12, we get β = 12/(3×108) = 4 x 10-8m/s.

QUESTION: 4

For a lossless dielectric, the attenuation will be

Solution:

Explanation: The attenuation is the loss of power of the wave during its propagation. In a lossless dielectric, the loss of power will not occur. Thus the attenuation will be zero.

QUESTION: 5

Calculate the velocity of a wave with frequency 2 x109 rad/s and phase constant of 4 x 108units.

Solution:

Explanation: The velocity of a wave is the ratio of the frequency to the phase constant. Thus V = ω/β. On substituting the given values, we get V = 2 x109/ 4 x 108 = 5 units.

QUESTION: 6

Which of the following is the correct relation between wavelength and the phase constant of a wave?

Solution:

Explanation: The phase constant is the ratio of 2π to the wavelength λ. Thus β = 2π/λ is the correct relation

QUESTION: 7

In lossy dielectric, the phase difference between the electric field E and the magnetic field H is

Solution:

Explanation: In a lossy dielectric, the E and H component will be in phase. This implies that the phase difference between E and H will be 0.

QUESTION: 8

The intrinsic impedance is the ratio of square root of

Solution:

Explanation: The intrinsic impedance is the impedance of a particular material. It is the ratio of square root of the permeability to permittivity. For air, the intrinsic impedance is 377 ohm or 120π.

QUESTION: 9

Calculate the skin depth of a material with attenuation constant of 2 units.

Solution:

Explanation: The skin depth of a material is the reciprocal of the attenuation constant. Thus δ = 1/α. On substituting for α = 2, we get δ = ½ = 0.5 units.

QUESTION: 10

Calculate the phase constant of a wave with skin depth of 2.5 units.

Solution:

Explanation: The skin depth is the reciprocal of the phase constant and the attenuation constant too. Thus δ = 1/β. On substituting for δ = 2.5, we get β = 1/δ = 1/2.5 = 2/5 units.

QUESTION: 11

An example for lossless propagation is

Solution:
