For part a) I did V=(L/C)

^{-1/2}=2.5x10

^{8}m/s. And then I said T=x/v where x=10m, so T=4x10

^{-8}s.

For part b) V

_{+}+V

_{-}=V

_{L}...since it's the first wave I suppose there wouldn't be a reflecting wave yet, so V

_{-}=0.

I have an equation that says V

_{+}=[V

_{L}/2](1+R

_{0}/R

_{L})...since it is an open circuit, R

_{L}=infinity, so R

_{0}/R

_{L}=0, and the equation becomes V

_{+}=V

_{L}/2 and V

_{L}=12V, so V

_{+}=pulse height = 6V.....but if [tex]V_-=0[/tex] then according to my first equation [tex]V_+=V_L=12V[/tex]..I'm confused.

I have a feeling b) is wrong and that it should actually be 24V because of a combination of waves, I'm not sure about part a), any help please?
