Problem: A microwave oven operates at 2.4 GHz with an intensity inside the oven of 2700W/m2 .(A) What is the amplitude of the oscillating electric field?(B) What is the amplitude of the oscillating magnetic field?

FREE Expert Solution

(A)

The amplitude of oscillating electric field:

E0=2μ0Ic

E0 = (2µ0Ic)(1/2)

To determine the amplitude of the electric field, we are going to substitute the values of µ0, I and c.
