Topband: Wire Guage vs Resistance
Mon, 30 Jul 2001 02:09:08 EDT
I blindly quoted from the note under a graph fig 3.10 in Moxon's book in a
posting yesterday stating that RF resistance was proportional to
However there is an inconsistency since in the text it quotes that R for a
given length of wire is "Inversely Proportional" to surface area ( - which
of course is circumference x length !)
Hence thinner wire has less surface area and more resistance.
My copy is a first edition dated 1982 but I dont know if the note was changed
in later editions.
Apologies for any misunderstanding
