Hello, I have just started reading some telecommunications basic concepts. I have a question regarding the following phrase:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"when considering that transmission lines are used in transmitting AC signals:

R << ωL

G << ωC

In high frequency applications the R is so much smaller than the xL that R can be ignored.

The G is so much smaller than xC that G can be ignored......"

Can someone please tell me what the ωL and ωC terms mean ?

What significance/meaning does the ω symbol have ?

Thanks kindly for any help.
