6) If \lambda_c is the cut off wavelength of a rectangular waveguide and \lambda_o is a free space wavelength. Then the condition for wave propagation is

a) \lambda_c > \lambda_o
b) \lambda_c < \lambda_o
c) \lambda_c = \lambda_o
d) \lambda_c = 0

TE(02) means the wave exists only in the Y direction. So look out for Electric field lines which are originating or ending at Y axis. In this case, options A and C are eliminated. Now we are left with option b and d.

Here as you can see, TE(02) means n=2 (Mode is 2) . So the E field equation will be of the following form

E_y= K sin(\frac{2\pi y}{b})

Y axis range is from 0 to b.

At

y=0 and y=b, value of sin is 0.

At y=b/4,  value of sin is 1

At y=3b/4, value of sin is -1

 

So, the correct answer is option “d” , where E field lines are pointing towards positive x axis below b/2 and towards negative x axis above b/2
