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

    A source with 50 ohm source impedance drives a 50 ohm T-line that is 1/8 of a wavelength long, terminated in a load Z=50-j25 ohms. calculate TL, VSWR, and the input impedance seen by the source

    Relevant Equations?

    Attempt to the Solution?

    Same goes for your other post as well.

    ok sorry about that, this is my attempt at this problem so far.

    i am not sure if i take the absolute value of both the imaginary and real part of ZL or if i did the calculation for VSWR right, please check my work.

    Would this problem be easier done with a Smith Chart, if so could someone walk me through that method?
