Electromagnetic Waves


If a source of power 4 kW produces 1020 photons/second, the radiation belongs to a part of the spectrum called

  1. microwaves
  2. X rays
  3. γ rays
  4. ultraviolet rays

An electromagnetic wave of frequency v = 3.0 MHz passes from vacuum into a dielectric medium with permittivity ∈ = 4.0. Then

  1. wave length is double and frequency becomes half
  2. wave length is double and the frequency remains unchanged
  3. wave length is halved and frequency remains unchanged
  4. wave length and frequency both remain unchanged
