When the vector of the electric field strength in the electromagnetic wave is oriented parallel to the metal rods, forced oscillations of free electrons are excited in them and the wave is reflected. When the vector of the electric field strength is oriented perpendicular to the rods, the forced vibrations have a lower amplitude, since the electrons vibrate across the rods.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
