1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A matching network consists of a length of T-line in series with a capacitor. Determine the length(in wavelength) required of the T-line section and the capacitor value needed (at 1 GHz) to match a 10-j35 ohm load impedance to the 50 ohm line

Do we get max. power transfer by setting $$Z_S = Z_L$$ both in AC and DC circuits?

i normalized Zl and used the smith chart......i ended up with a wavelength of .03 and capacitance of 1.59 x 10^-12 F

can anyone confirm this?
