transmission line wavelength (λ) calculator - step by step calculation, formula & solved example problem to find the wavelength of the lossless transmission line. Velocity of propagation (U) & sinusoidal frequency (f) are the key elements of this calculation. Wavelength is a wave between any two points. Velocity of propagation (VoP) is the speed of wave propagation, also known as velocity factor (VF). Sinusoidal wave frequency is the number of complete sine wave cycle per second.
