2. (a) State Maxwell’s equations j’or static .fields. Explain how are th~3Ymodified for ti11evarying fields.

(b) The field intensity E= 250 sin 1010t (VIm) for a field ‘propagating in the medium whose cr = 5slm andEr = 1. Calculate the displacement current density 3D, the conducticn current density Jc and the frequency at which Jc=JD. 8


3. (a). State and explain Poynting vector using modified Ampere’s law derive the Poynting theorem and describe thE!significance of each of its terms.

(b) Consider a circular cylinder with radius of one meter and length 0.75 m in free f;pace with its axis along the z direction. An EMwave is propagating in this positive z direction wi1:hits electric field E= ili [2~f(t -~)lax(vjm)  Where f = 100 MHz and c is the velocity of light. Determine (i) Poynting vector and (ii) Net power flow enterin9 the cylinder.
