Distinguish between sky wave and space wave propagation. Give a brief description with the help of suitable diagrams indicating how these waves are propagated.

Sky waves. A radio wave transmitted towards the sky and reflected by the ionosphere towards the desired location of the earth is called a sky wave.
Space waves. A radio wave that travels directly from a high transmitting antenna to the receiving station is called space wave.
Diagram. Various propagation modes of electromagnetic waves (EMW) is shown below. 4461 Views

The oscillating magnetic field in a plane electromagnetic wave is given by
By = (8 × 10-6) sin [2 × 1011 t + 300 $\mathrm{\pi }$x] T
(i) Calculate the wavelength of the electromagnetic wave.
(ii) Write down the expression for the oscillating electric field.

Given equation for oscillating magnetic field is,
By = (8 × 10-6) sin [2 × 1011 t + 300 $\mathrm{\pi }$x]T .

Comparing the given equation with the equation of magnetic field varying sinusoidally with x and t

we get,

$\therefore$

and

(i) Wavelength of the electromagnetic wave,

(ii) Magnitude of electric field is calculated by,

$\therefore$ The required
expression for the oscillating electric field is,

Write any four characteristics of electromagnetic waves. Give two uses of (i) radio-waves (ii) Microwaves.

Characteristics of electromagnetic waves:

(i) Electromagnetic waves are produced by accelerating or oscillating charge.
(ii) E.M. waves do not require any material medium for their propagation.
(iii) E.M. waves travel in free space with a velocity  which is equal to the velocity of light (c = 3 × 108 m/s).
(iv) E.M. waves are transverse in nature.

Uses of Radio waves:

(i) They are used in radio and TV communication systems.
(ii) Cellular phones use radio waves to transmit voice communication in the ultrahigh frequency (UHF) band.

Uses of Microwaves:

(i) Microwaves are used in Radar systems for aircraft navigation.
(ii) Microwave ovens are used for cooking purposes.
