General description (4) l v(t) ~ c As the switch is closed a voltage (and current) pulse moves down the wire. Time to travel length of wire is l /c. If voltage is not varying at this time scale then the system equilibrates such that the wire is at a constant voltage and no current flowing. However if the voltage varies at a frequency comparable to this time then the system is not in equilibrium. Close switch at t = 0 Close the switch attaching the battery to two wires

8 General description (8) How is a TL different from an electric circuit? Consider the following structure: When , i.e. the voltage does not depend on the length of the connecting wires When is not too small , i.e. the voltage depends on the length of the wires! What is low and high frequency regime? Look at ! If low frequency (no delay). If high frequency (large delay). 0 BB AA V V ω = ω 0 ( ) cos( ( )) BB AA V V t l c V t l c ω = = 2 ~ l c l l ω π λ λ = ~1 or 1 l l λ λ ? 1 l λ = response delay
