A uniform plane wave having parallel polarization is obliquely incident on an air - dielectric interface as shown in Fig. If the wave has an electric field $$E = 10\,\,V/m$$, find

(i) The angle of incidence $${\theta _i}$$ for which there is no reflection of the wave.

(ii) The surface charge density at the interface.

A wave traveling in the $$+Z$$-direction, is the resultant of two linearly polarized components, $${E_x}\,\,\, = \,\,\,\,\,\,3$$ $$\,\,\,\,\cos \omega t$$ and $$\,{E_y}\,\,\,\, = \,\,\,2\,\cos \,\left( {\omega t + {{45}^ \circ }} \right)$$

Determine

(1) The axial ratio

(2) The angle between the major axis of the polarization ellipse and the $$+x$$-axis.
