    I need help with these problems as google does not provide accurate answers... vvv:(:mad::confused:

    Find the following properties for copper wire in 18 AWG, 20 AWG, 22 AWG, 24 AWG, 26 AWG, and 28 AWG sizes:

    1. Attenuation (loss) per 1000’ in dB for a 1 KHz tone.
    Find the following properties for Cat 5e, Cat 6, RG 59, and RG 6 cables:
    1. Resistance per 1000’.
    2. Bandwidth capability.
    3. Attenuation (loss) per 1000’ in dB for a 1 KHz tone.

    1. The attenuation will be caused by the resistance of the wire and then input resistance of the measuring device.

    1. That figure is given by obtaining the conductor gauge and using the resistance figures.
    2. That figure is accurately given in the specifications.
    3. Works as with the straight wire.
