physics- Electromagnetic waves

posted by .

A square piece of foil with area A = 5.0 × 10^-4 m^2 and mass m = 5.0 × 10^-5 kg is suspended along one edge and hangs under its own weight. When light is incident perpendicular to the foil,the foil bends and reaches an equilibrium angle of 2 degrees. If the light is completely reflected by the foil, what is the peak value of the electric field associated with the light?
