For example, if the electric field intensity going through a medium attenuates at a rate of 0.4 dB/m, what is ? -0.4 dB = -8.686 (1 m) = 0.4/8.686 = 0.046 nepers/m Note: nepers (np) is not a real unit. similar to radians !!! Note also is a positive number for attenuation.

Summary

## Example - The skin depth of a certain nonmagnetic conducting

material is 2m at 5 GHz. Determine the phase velocity in the material. What is the attenuation (in dB) when the wave penetrates 10 m into the material? phase velocity v = / for conductor, = = 1/ v = = (2)(5 x 109) (2 x 10-6) = 6.28 x 104 m/s

r E (r ) A(r )[dB] = 20 log r = 20 log e r = 8.686r E (0) A(r )[dB] = 8.686r / = 8.686(10 / 2) = 43.4dB

Homework
1. Determine the frequency at which a time-harmonic electric field intensity causes a conduction current density and a displacement current density of equal magnitude in (a) seawater with r = 72 and = 4 S/m, and (b) moist soil with r = 2.5 and = 10-3 S/m. Calculations concerning the electromagnetic effect of currents in a good conductor usually neglect the displacement current even at microwave frequencies. (a) Assuming r = 1 and = 5.7 x 107 S/m for copper, compare the magnitude of the displacement current density with that of the conduction current density at 100 GHz. (b) Write the differential equation in phasor form for magnetic field intensity H in a source-free good conductor.
