Cylindrical coordinates are a simple extension of the two-dimensional polar
coordinates to three dimensions. Recall that the position of a point in the plane can be
described using polar coordinates (r,). The polar coordinate r is the distance of the
point from the origin. The polar coordinate is the angle between the x-axis and the line
segment from the origin to the point.

Cylindrical coordinates simply combine the polar coordinates in the xy-plane


with the usual z coordinate of Cartesian coordinates. To form the cylindrical coordinates

of a point P, simply project it down to a point Q in the xy-plane (see the below figure).
Then, take the polar coordinates (r,) of the point Q, i.e., r is the distance from the
origin to Q and is the angle between the positive x-axis and the line segment from the
origin to Q. The third cylindrical coordinate is the same as the usual z-coordinate. It is
the signed distance of the point P to the xy-plane (being negative is P is below the xyplane). The below figure illustrates the cylindrical coordinates (r,,z) of the point P.

You can further explore the properties of the cylindrical coordinates with the follow
applet. You can observe how changing the coordinates (r,,z) changes the position of the
point P. Just as with polar coordinates, we usually limit 0<2 and r0 to descrease the
non-uniqueness of cylindrical coordinates. However, when r=0, there is a nonuniqueness since the point P is on the z axis when r=0, independent of the value of .
Cylindrical coordinates. Given the values for cylindrical coordinates r, , and z,
which you can change by dragging the blue points on the sliders, the large purple point
shows the corresponding position in Cartesian coordinates. The blue point is the
projection of the purple point in the xy-plane. This projection gives perspective and
helps in visualizing and r. The coordinate r is the length of the cyan line segment from
the origin to the blue point. The coordinate is the angle the cyan line segment makes
with the positive x-axis. The coordinate z is the same as the z-coordinate of Cartesian
coordinates. On the sliders, is written as .

Energy density is the amount of energy stored in a given system or region of space

47. Write the expression of integral form of continuity equation.
The integral form of the continuity equation states that:

An inductor with a closed-loop core can have a higher magnetic field and thus
higher inductance and Q factor than similarly constructed coils with a straight core

26.When is method of images used?
Method of images is used in solving problems of one or more point charges in
the presence of boundary surfaces.
27. Define power density.
The power density is defined as the ratio of power to unit
area. Power density=power/unit area.
28. What is called wave velocity?
The velocity of propagation is called as wave velocity. It is denoted as .
= 1 .
For free space it is denoted by c and its value is 3x108m/s.
29. What is called as intrinsic impedance?
The ratio of amplitudes of EandH of the waves in either direction is called
intrinsic impedance of the material in which wave is travelling. It is denoted by .
30. Why dielectric medium is lossless dielectric.
For perfect dielectric medium, both the fields EandH are in phase. Hence there is
no attenuation .Hence there is no loss.
31. What is mean by lossy dielectric?
The presence of attenuation indicates there is a loss in the medium. Hence such
medium is called as lossy dielectric.
32. What is mean by skin depth?
The distance through which the amplitude of the travelling wave decreases to
37% of the original amplitude is called skin depth or depth of penetration.
33. What is called skin effect?
For the frequencies in the microwave range, the skin depth or depth of penetration
is very small for good conductors and all the fields and currents may be considered as
confined to a thin layer near the surface of the conductor. This thin layer is nothing but
the skin of the conductor and hence it is called skin effect.
34. What is Normal Incidence?
When a uniform plane wave incidences normally to the boundary between the
media, then it is known as normal incidence.
35. What is normal Incidence?
When a uniform plane wave incidences obliquely to the boundary between the
media, then it is known as normal incidence.
36. What are Waves?
Basically the waves are means of transporting energy or information from
source to destination. Also a wave is function of both space and time. The typical ex of
EM waves are radio waves, TV signals, radar beams.

38. What is called attenuation constant?


When a wave propagates in the medium, it gets attenuated. The amplitude of the
signal reduces. This is represented by attenuation constant . It is measured in neper per
meter (NP/m). But practically it is expressed in decibel (dB).
39. What is phase constant?
When a wave propagates, phase change also takes place. Such a phase change
is expressed by a phase constant . It is measured in radian per meter (rad/m).
40. Define standing wave ratio.
The standing wave ratio is defined as the ratio of maximum to minimum
amplitudes of voltage.

41. How voltage maxima and minima are separated?


In general voltage minima are separated by one half wavelength. Also the voltage
maxima are also separated by one half wave length.
42. What is the condition for perfect dielectric?
For perfect dielectric, the conductivity is zero and hence the loss of the system is
also zero.
43. What is the condition for practical dielectric?
Fir practical dielectric, there is some conductivity, that is its value is not zero and
hence there is some loss in practical dielectric but its value is very small.
44. Define group velocity.
If a stone is thrown into the middle of a very still pond, a circular pattern of
waves with a quiescent center appears in the water. The expanding ring of waves is the
wave group, within which one can discern individual wavelets of differing wavelengths
travelling at different speeds.
45. Define phase velocity.
The phase velocity of a wave is the rate at which the phase of the wave
propagates in space. This is the velocity at which the phase of any one frequency
component of the wave travels. For such a component, any given phase of the wave (for
example, the crest) will appear to travel at the phase velocity. The phase velocity is given
in terms of the wavelength (lambda) and period T as

46. Define dielectric strength.


The maximum electric field intensity that a dielectric material can stand without
break down is the dielectric strength of the material.
47. Define wave impedance.
The wave impedance of an electromagnetic wave is the ratio of the transverse
components of the electric and magnetic fields (the transverse components being those at
right angles to the direction of propagation). For a transverse-electric-magnetic (TEM)
plane wave traveling through a homogeneous medium, the wave impedance is
everywhere equal to the intrinsic impedance of the medium. In particular, for a plane
wave travelling through empty space, the wave impedance is equal to the impedance of
free space.
48. Write the expression of wave impedance in free space.
In free space the wave impedance of plane waves is:

49. Write the expression of wave impedance in wave guide.


For any waveguide in the form of a hollow metal tube, (such as rectangular guide,
circular guide, or double-ridge guide), the wave impedance of a travelling wave is
dependent on the frequency , but is the same throughout the guide. For transverse
electric (TE) modes of propagation the wave impedance is:

Where fc is the cut-off frequency of the mode, and for transverse magnetic (TM) modes
of propagation the wave impedance is:

50. What is mean by wave propagation?


Wave propagation is any of the ways in which waves travel. With respect to the
direction of the oscillation relative to the propagation direction, we can distinguish
between longitudinal wave and transverse waves. For electromagnetic waves,
propagation may occur in a vacuum as well as in a material medium. Other wave types
cannot propagate through a vacuum and need a transmission medium to exist.
