Homework Help: Conductance vs resistance

  1. Nov 16, 2004 #1
    I'm wondering why coaxial cable would be characterized by conductance per unit length but not resistace per unit length
    Thanks for all yall's help, again :smile:

    I'm not sure why this would be a problem, since the resistance is the reciprocal of the conductance, and vice versa. So given one, you automatically have the other.
