Describe in Detail

Essay▾

A monochromatic plane wave in free space with electric field amplitude of is normally incident on a fully reflecting mirror. The pressure exerted on the mirror is . (up to two decimal places) .

Explanation

The radiation pressure exerted on the mirror, due to a monochromatic plane wave in free space with electric field amplitude of is normally incident on a fully reflecting mirror, is given as;

Here, electric field is normally incident, that means angle between electric field and normal of the mirror is zero .

Since,

Therefore, from equation (1) ,
