one application of each.
d) Helen FM transmits its broadcast at 101.1MHz FM.
(i) What is the wavelength of this signal?
(ii) What are the limitations of this type of transmission?
e) Explain why it is usually possible for us to see through the glass door into the domestic
microwave oven yet the microwave radiation cannot escape through the door and cause
harm.

Fall 2004
