(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the attenuation constant alpha, phase constant β, and phase velocity v if the conductivity of the material is σ=ωε the material parameters are μr=1, εr =2.5, and the wavelength in free space is λ naught = 30cm

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So using some big hairy equations I found alpha to be equal to 9.53 nepers/m. The part I am having trouble with is the beta part? I start out using this equation β=sqrt((με/2)(1+sqrt(1+(σ/ωε)^2))). I have tried a ton of different ways to arrive at this equation β=(ω/c)(sqrt(εr))(sqrt((1+sqrt(2))/(2))) what do I do?
