High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The wave impedance of an
electromagnetic wave is the ratio of the transverse components of
the electric and magnetic fields (the transverse components being
those at right angles to the direction of propagation). For a
transverse-electric-magnetic (TEM) plane wave traveling through a
homogeneous medium, the wave impedance is everywhere equal to the
intrinsic impedance of the medium. In particular, for a plane wave
travelling through empty space, the wave impedance is equal to the
impedance of free space. The symbol Z is used to represent it and
it is expressed in units of ohms. The symbol (eta) may be used
instead of Z for wave impedance to avoid confusion with electrical
