This work deals with calculation of the absorbed, transmitted and reflected coefficients in an inhomogeneous magnetized cold plasma slab assumed to have a parabolic density function, and examines the impact of various parameters (plasma density, collision frequency, plasma slab thickness and strength of background magnetic field) on these coefficients. Increased absorption and reflection of microwaves by plasmas of higher density and lower collision frequency were observed. Increasing the magnetic field shifted the resonant frequencies to higher value, and maximum absorption and reflection was observed at optimum plasma slab thickness of 0.20 m.
