Assume a plane wave with E = 1 V/m and a frequency of 300 × 106 cps moving in free space, impinges on a thick copper plate located perpendicularly to the direction of propagation. Find
  1. E at the plane surface
  2. H at the same location
  3. δ, depth of penetration
  4. Conduction current density at the surface
  5. J, the conduction current density, at the depth of 10-2 mm
  6. Surface current density
  7. Surface impedance
  8. Power loss per square metre of surface area
Assume σ = 5.8 × 107 mho/m. ε = ε0, μ = μ0.
Given: Ei = 1 V/m, f = 300 × 106 cps

(a) Here, η1 = 377 Ω
∴ transmission coefficient is,
