Question

A sinusoidal electromagnetic wave is propagating in vacuum in the +z-direction. If at a particular instant and at a certain point in space the electric field is in the +x-direction and has magnitude 3.20 V/m, what are the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field of the wave at this same point in space and instant in time?

    Answer:

    The magnitude of the magnetic field is B_o = 1.13 *10^{-8}T

     The direction is in the +y direction

    Explanation:

        From the question we are told that  

          The electric field is E_o = 3.40 \ V/m

    The relationship between electric and magnetic field is mathematically represented  as

                   c = \frac{E_o}{B_o}

    Where  c is the speed of light

                  B_o is the magnetic field

    Making B_o  the subject off the formula

                    B_o = \frac{E_o}{c}

                           = \frac{3.40}{3*10^{8}}

                     B_o = 1.13 *10^{-8}T

    Generally in an electromagnetic wave the direction of the wave propagation , the electric field and the magnetic field are perpendicular

       Since from the question the direction of the electric field is +x direction and the  wave  propagation is in the + z direction then the magnetic field would be in the + y direction
