The electric and magnetic fields of a plane electromagnetic wave are given by the formulas below, where and are both in meters and is in seconds. This wave is traveling through a medium whose index of refraction is 1.3.

Reminder: The "x.xxenn t" notation in the sine functions means " t".
= 2.8  z + 1.19e16 V/m
= z + 1.19e16 Tesla
