The loss tangent of a perfect dielectric will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Plane Waves in Good Conductor & Dielectrics - Question 13

Explanation: Dielectrics have poor conductivity. The loss tangent σ/ωε will be low in dielectrics. For perfect dielectrics, the loss tangent will be minimum.

Test: Plane Waves in Good Conductor & Dielectrics - Question 14

In pure dielectrics, the parameter that is zero is

Detailed Solution for Test: Plane Waves in Good Conductor & Dielectrics - Question 14

Explanation: There are no free charge carriers available in a dielectric. In other words, the charge carriers are present in the valence band, which is very difficult to start to conduct. Thus conduction is low in dielectrics. For pure dielectrics, the conductivity is assumed to be zero.

Detailed Solution for Test: Plane Waves in Good Conductor & Dielectrics - Question 19

Explanation: The velocity of a wave is given by V = ω/β. To get ω, put v = 3 x 108 and β = 20. Thus ω = vβ = 3 x 108 x 20 = 60 x 108 = 6 GHz.

Test: Plane Waves in Good Conductor & Dielectrics - Question 22

The expression for intrinsic impedance is given by

Detailed Solution for Test: Plane Waves in Good Conductor & Dielectrics - Question 22

Explanation: The intrinsic impedance is given by the ratio of square root of the permittivity to the permeability. Thus η = √(μ/ε) is the intrinsic impedance. In free space or air medium, the intrinsic impedance will be 120π or 377 ohms.
