Question Description

1) An antenna is connected to a car battery. Will the antenna emit electromagnetic radiation? Why or why not? Explain.2) A light-year is a m

Final Answer

1. the antenna will not emit electromagnetic radiation... the battery gives of direct voltage and cannot give suffiencient means to provide the antenna to make electromagnetic radiation. an antenna needs an alternating current for it to produce electromagnetic radiation.

2. light year equals 300,000 m/s: 300000 m/s * 3600s/1hr * 24hr/1day * 365day/year = 9.4608x10^12 m

3. 384,000 km ---> 3.84x10^8 m: so to and bck is 3.84x10^8 + 3.84x10^8 = 7.68x10^8... the speed of beam will be the speed of light which is 3x10^8 m/s.. so 7.68x10^8 m / 3x10^8 = 2.56 s

I was on a very tight deadline but thanks to Studypool I was able to deliver my assignment on time.

The tutor was pretty knowledgeable, efficient and polite. Great service!

Heard about Studypool for a while and finally tried it. Glad I did caus this was really helpful.
