## Solution

We find cyclic frequency:

We find the wave resistance of the line, suggesting that the wire resistance is equal to zero, and resistance between wires is infinite (line without losses):

We find the propagation constant:

Then the phase coefficient is equal:

We put the symbol m:

Distribution of the current in the line based on the distance from the end of the line:

Instantaneous values of the voltage:

The diagram is constructed further the line beginning (it is indicted by a vertical line) to define minimum and maximum voltage of the combined wave.

The coefficient of the travelling wave is ratio of the minimum voltage of the combined wave to its maximum voltage – define according to the diagram.
