QUESTION: 1

In a transverse electric magnetic wave, which of the following will be true?

Solution:

Answer: d
Explanation: In the transverse electric magnetic wave (TEM wave), both the electric and magnetic field strengths are transverse to the wave propagation.

QUESTION: 2

The cut off frequency of the TEM wave is

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: The TEM waves have both E and H perpendicular to the guide axis. Thus its cut off frequency is zero.

QUESTION: 3

Which component is non zero in a TEM wave?

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: In a TEM wave, the wave propagates along the guided axis. Thus the components Ez and Hz are zero. The attenuation is also zero. The non-zero component will be Ex.

QUESTION: 4

TEM wave can propagate in rectangular waveguides. State true/false.

Solution:

Answer: b
Explanation: The rectangular waveguide does not allow the TEM wave. TEM mode can exist only in two conductor system and not in hollow waveguide in which the centre conductor does not exist.

QUESTION: 5

The cut off wavelength in the TEM wave will be

Solution:

Answer: c
Explanation: The cut off frequency in a TEM wave is zero. Thus the cut off wavelength will be infinity.

QUESTION: 6

The guided wavelength of a TEM wave in a waveguide having a wavelength of 5 units is

Solution:

Answer: c
Explanation: The guided wavelength is same as the wavelength of the waveguide with a TEM wave. Thus the guided wavelength is 5 units.

QUESTION: 7

The guided phase constant of a TEM wave in a waveguide with a phase constant of 2.8 units is

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: The guided phase constant is same as the phase constant of the waveguide. For the given data, the guided phase constant is 2.8 units.

QUESTION: 8

Which type of transmission line accepts the TEM wave?

Solution:

Answer: b
Explanation: Hollow transmission lines support TE and TM waves only. The TEM wave is possible only in the coaxial cable transmission line, which is not hollow.

QUESTION: 9

For a TEM wave to propagate in a medium, the medium has to be

Solution:

Answer: d
Explanation: The medium in which the TEM waves propagate has to be non- dispersive. This implies the phase velocity and the characteristic impedance has to be constant over a wide band.

QUESTION: 10

Stripline and parallel plate waveguides support the TEM wave. State true/false. 

Solution:

Answer: a
Explanation: The stripline and parallel plate waveguides are not hollow and the dielectric is lossless. The medium is non dispersive. Thus the statement is true.
