35) A radiometer has two square vanes (1.0 cm by 1.0 cm), attached to a light horizontal cross arm, and pivoted about a vertical axis through the center, as shown in the figure. The center of each vane is 6.0 cm from the axis. One vane is silvered and it reflects all radiant energy incident upon it. The other vane is blackened and it absorbs all incident radiant energy. An electromagnetic wave with an intensity of 0.30 kW/m2 is incident normally upon the vanes. What is the torque due to radiation pressure on the vane assembly about the vertical axis? (*c *= 3.00 × 108 m/s, *μ*0 = 4*π* × 10-7 T ∙ m/A,* ε*0 = 8.85 × 10-12 C2/N ∙ m2)

- A) 2.4 × 10-12 N ∙ m
- B) 6.0 × 10-12 N ∙ m
- C) 1.2 × 10-11 N ∙ m
- D) 1.8 × 10-11 N ∙ m
- E) 2.4 × 10-11 N ∙ m

36) A microwave oven operates with sinusoidal microwaves at a frequency of 2400 MHz. The height of the oven cavity is 25 cm and the base measures 30 cm by 30 cm. Assume that microwave energy is generated uniformly on the upper surface of the cavity and propagates directly downward toward the base. The base is lined with a material that completely absorbs microwave energy. The total microwave energy content of the cavity is 0.50 µJ. What magnitude force does the microwave beam exert on the base of the oven? (*c *= 3.00 × 108 m/s, *μ*0 = 4*π* × 10-7 T ∙ m/A,* ε*0 = 8.85 × 10-12 C2/N ∙ m2)

- A) 1.6 µN
- B) 2.0 µN
- C) 2.5 µN
- D) 3.0 µN
- E) 3.5 µN
