Electromagnetic Transmission

  1. Jul 29, 2011 #1
    Figure below shows a load made up of a 50 W resistance, a 15 nH inductance and a 22 pF
    capacitance connected in series. The load is terminated to a two-wire transmission line with
    characteristics impedance of 50 W.

    (i) Determine the load reflection coefficient at an operating frequency of 900 MHz, from
    the Smith chart.

    (ii) Calculate the standing wave ratio on the transmission line.

    (iii) Determine the input impedance at 0.15 l away from the load using the Smith chart,
    where l is the wavelength at the operating frequency.

    Help me answer this question :cool:
