The Properties of Coaxial Cable – Part 1 The Magnetic Field

Part 1 – The Magnetic Field
By Dr. Eugene Patronis

This is the first in a short series of articles that will describe the properties of coaxial cables as deduced from both the vector field theory and circuit theory points of view. Both of these perspectives stem from Maxwell’s equations. This first article deals with the magnetic and hence inductive properties of coaxial cables. The electric properties and combined electromagnetic properties will be discussed in a later article.
