2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Energy in electromagnetic waves The magnitude of the Poynting vector is the power per unit area in the wave, and it points in the direction of propagation.

The intensity of a sinusoidal electromagnetic wave is the time average of the Poynting vector. 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Q32.6 In a sinusoidal electromagnetic wave in a vacuum, the magnetic energy density A. is the same at all points in the wave.

B. is maximum where the electric field has its greatest value. C. is maximum where the electric field is zero. D. none of the above 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Q32.7 The drawing shows a sinusoidal electromagnetic wave in a vacuum at one instant of time at points between x = 0 and x = . At this instant, at which values of x does the instantaneous Poynting vector have its maximum magnitude?

A. x = 0 and x = only B. x = /4 and x = 3/4 only C. x = /2 only D. x = 0, x = /2, and x = 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. A32.7 The drawing shows a sinusoidal electromagnetic wave in a vacuum at one instant of time at points between x = 0 and x = . At this instant, at which values

Electromagnetic waves can be reflected by a conductor or dielectric, which can lead to standing waves. (See Figure 32.22 below.) Mathematically, standing waves are a superposition of incoming and outgoing waves. 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.
