**Coaxial Line: TEM Mode (cont.)**

Let’s redo the calculation of conductor attenuation using the Wheeler incremental inductance formula. z y x b a Wheeler’s formula: The formula is applied for each conductor and the conductor attenuation from each of the two conductors is then added. In this formula, dl (for a given conductor) is the distance by which the conducting boundary is receded away from the field region.
