What will be the velocity of a TEM wave travelling through free space? Show detailed calculation.

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

The velocity of Transverse Electromagnetic (TEM) wave travelling through free space is dependent on free space permitivity and permeability. It can be expressed as

4Permability of Free Space
E= Permitivity of Free Space
