10 A plane wave is incident normally on a perfectly absorbing flat screen . ( a )
From the law of conservation of linear momentum show that the pressure ( called
radiation pressure ) exerted on the screen is equal to the field energy per unit ...
Their first chapter covers plane waves , polarization , and reflection and refraction
, among other topics . A very complete discussion of plane waves incident on
boundaries of dielectrics and conductors is given by Stratton , Chapter IX .
The relativistic Doppler shift formulas can be obtained from the fact that the phase
of a light wave is an invariant quantity . Actually , the phase of any plane wave is
invariant under a Lorentz transformation , the reason being that the phase can ...
