A plane wave with $$\overrightarrow E = 10\,{e^{j\left( {\omega t - \beta z} \right)\,}}\,\,{\overrightarrow a _{_y}}$$ is incident normally on a thick plane conductor lying in the $$X - Y$$ plane. Its conductivity is $$6 \times {10^6}\,\,\,S/m\,\,\,$$ and surface impedance is $$5 \times {0^{ - 4}}\,\angle {45^0}\Omega $$. Determine the propagation constant and the skin depth in the conductor.
