In an electromagnetic wave the electric field vector

Question:

In an electromagnetic wave the electric field vector and magnetic field vector are given as $\vec{E}=E_{0} \hat{i}$ and $\overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}=\mathrm{B}_{0} \hat{\mathrm{k}}$ respectively. The direction of propagation of electromagnetic wave is along :

 

  1. $(\hat{\mathrm{k}})$

  2. $\hat{J}$

  3. $(-\hat{\mathrm{k}})$

  4. $(-\hat{j})$


Correct Option: , 4

Solution:

Direction of propagation $=\overrightarrow{\mathrm{E}} \times \overrightarrow{\mathrm{B}}=\hat{\mathrm{i}} \times \hat{\mathrm{k}}=-\hat{\mathrm{j}}$
