Homework Help: Transmission line characteristics

  1. Jun 20, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If a transmission line operating at 250 MHz has a characteristic impedance Z0 of
    50 Ohm and propagation coefficient γ = 0.4 + j7.5 per meter, calculate its primary
    coefficients R, L, C and G.

    Hello, I do not know what formula I can use to solve this problem.
    If anyone can give me some help it would be much appreciated.

    What learning resources are you provided for this course? It seems strange that they would assign you this question, without having first presented the material to you...

    In any case, the Wikipedia article on transmission lines is pretty good:
