Referring to Figures 8, the tangential component is primarily responsible for changing the linear speed of the bat, while the normal and bi-normal components primarily control the level of the swing plane and the path of the grip point.
From Figure 5 we see that there is no tangential component of the electric or the magnetic field for [alpha] = 0.
Thus the axial component force can be neglected and the radial and tangential component forces will be mainly considered.
As shown in Figure 2(a), the tangential component of an incident electric field wave is zero at the bottom of a corrugated surface, which indicates zero resistance, according to the boundary condition.
