and ZL =150∠0ºΩ
The characteristic impedance of a distortionless line is
(Since L/R = C/G for a distortionless line)
Hence, characteristic impedance of a distortionless line is purely real.

Which of the following statements related to a transmission line is/are correct?
1. Transmission line elements are integral parts of the antenna, in some antenna system.
2. A feeder is a particular case of a transmission Sine.
3. A lossless transmission line doesn’t has resistance but, has a non-zero value of leakage conductance.

Assertion (A): A finite transmission line terminated in its characteristic impedance Z0, is equivalent to an infinite line.
Reason (R): The input impedance of an infinite line is the characteristic impedance of the line.
The input impedance of a finite line terminated in its characteristic impedance (Z0), is equivalent to an infinite line because the input impedance of an infinite line is the characteristic impedance of the line (Z0). Hence, both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.
Consider the following statements:
1. Propagation constant is a dimensionless quantity.
2. When the line is lossless, propagation constant is directly proportional to the frequency.
3. Propagation constant when multiplied with the frequency gives the electrical length of the line.
Which of the above statements is/are true?
Assertion (A): The group velocity is usually more than the phase velocity.
Reason (R): If the transmission line or transmission medium is such that different frequencies travel with different velocities, then the line or the medium is said to be dispersive.
Group velocity is given by
Phase velocity or velocity of propagation is given by
The group velocity is usually less than the phase velocity. Hence, assertion is a false statement.
Assertion (A): A transmission line act as resonant circuit and is used in many applications at high frequencies in antenna design and other ratio circuitory
Reason (R): An open and short-circuited lines behaves like resonant circuit when length of line is an integral multiple of λ/3.
Assertion is correct because when a transmission line is open or short-circuited it behaves as resonant circuit. However, reason is false because this happens when length of the line is an integral multiple of λ/4.
We knnw that
Zoc = -j cot βl
and Zsc = jZ0 tan βl
Thus, when βl = length of line = nλ/4 , then
cot βl = 0
and tan βl = ∞
∴ Zoc = 0
and Zsc = ∞
This means a quarter wave short-circuit line represents an infinite impedance at inpul terminals, just like a parallel resonant (LC) circuil and a λ/4 open circuit line present zero impedance at input terminals just like a series resonant LC circuit.
Assertion (A): Sometimes a quarter wave line is called as impedance inverter.
Reason (R): The quarter wavelength line transforms a load impedance ZR that is smaller than Z0 into a value Zs that is larger than Z0 and vice-versa.
