Coaxial cable is built with the following components: Two concentric metallic conductors: The inner conductor carries data signals. It is made of copper or copper coated with tin. The mesh conductor is a second physical channel that also grounds the cable. It is made of aluminum or copper coated tin. An insulator that surrounds the inner conductor and keeps the signal separated from the mesh conductor. It is made of PVC plastic. A mesh conductor that surrounds the insulator and grounds the cable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
