(a) Provide details of solution (explain equations you are using and all the parameters in the equation (what they represent, what are their SI units, what is the final unit?) without actual calculations. You can “consolidate” your answer by describing the parts of the solution that match between TE and TM and then the parts that are different.

(b) Develop a separate Matlab code for the TE and TM cases OR ask for user input and separate the two cases within the same code (submit the same code to both Gradescope sections to avoid confusion).

(c) Draw conclusions – develop graphs and test for various conditions to develop an understanding of how the different parameters impact the overall behavior of the waveguide. Choose some representative graphs to add to your solution; describe.

Problem 2:

(a) Provide details of solution (explain equations you are using and all the parameters in the equation (what they represent, what are their SI units, what is the final unit?) without actual calculations. You can “consolidate” your answer by describing the parts of the solution that match between TE and TM and then the parts that are different. You have to edit the code to calculate the “general purpose” alpha, not the 10 case. Test for various cases to see how the answer changes. Discuss.
