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

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.

Same thing I was thinking
