Problem 3 Problem 2.18 Polyethylene with r = 2.25 is used as the insulating material in a

lossless coaxial line with characteristic impedance of 50 . The radius of the inner conductor is 1.2 mm. (a) What is the radius of the outer conductor? (b) What is the phase velocity of the line?

(d) A current maximum occurs at a voltage minimum, and from Eq. (2.72), dmin = dmax /4 = 3.11 cm 8 cm/4 = 1.11 cm. (e) The problem statement does not specify the frequency, so in Module 2.4 we need to select the combination of f and r such that = 5 cm. With r chosen as 1, f= 3 108 c = = 3.75 GHz. 8 102

The generator parameters are irrelevant to the problem. The results listed in the output screens are very close to those given in parts (a) through (d).
