Homework Help: Coaxial cable?

  1. Mar 12, 2008 #1

    I am doing an experiment with a coaxial cable and i want to Count out it expected RC-constant for the cable.

    I have measured the resistance for the cable, but when i count the RC, the resistansen that will be used only is the half of it resistans measured in the beginning.

    Why should i use the half resistance?

    Additional Details

    I think it has something to do with the electrons, or?

    I'm sorry, but I can't even understand what you're saying.
