(a) (i)Microwaves are used in radar. The frequency range is

10^{10}\; \; to \; \; 10^{12} Hz.

 (ii) Ultraviolet rays (UV) are used in eye surgery. The frequency range is 10^{15}\; Hz\; \; to \; 10^{17}\; Hz

(b) We know that the energy density due to the electric field is given by :

U_E =\frac{1}{2}\; \varepsilon _{o}\; \; E^{2} -----(a)

Energy density due to the magnetic field is given by :

U_{B}= \frac{1}{2}\frac{{B^{2}}}{\mu _{o}} ------ (ii)

where

\mu _{o} = absolute permeability

Hence, we have

\frac{E}{B}=c

where c is the speed permeability.

so, E=cB

On putting the value of E_{o} in equation (i), we have

U.E = \frac{1}{2}\; \varepsilon _{o}\; (CB)^{2}

Here, C^{2}=\frac{1}{\mu _{o}\varepsilon _{o}}

then,

U_E = \frac{1}{2}\varepsilon _{o}\times B^{2}\times \frac{1}{\mu _{o}\varepsilon _{o}}

U_E = \frac{B^{2}}{2\mu _{o}} --------(iii)

Now, on comparing equation (ii) and (iii), we get that average energy density of the oscillating electric field (U_E) is equal to that of the oscillating magnetic field.(U_{B}).

Hence, U_{B} = U_{E}= \frac{B^{2}}{2\mu _{o}}
