Question: 

A 1.60-m-long FM antenna is oriented parallel to the electric field of an EM wave. How large must the electric field be to produce a 1.00-mV (rms) voltage between the ends of the antenna? What is the rate of energy transport per $m^2$?

Quick Answer: 

$E_{rms} = 6.25 \times 10^{-4} \textrm{ V/m, } $
$I_{avg} = 1.04 \times 10^{-9} \textrm{ W/m}^2$
