    Hello,

    I experienced an inaccuracy while reading Vol. II, chapter 14 of the online book about transmission lines. The speed of light was stated as 186.000 m/s which is confusing as m is the SI unit of 'meter', but is used for 'mile' in this context. I would appreciate if you could change it to either 186.000 mi/s or 300.000 km/s for consistency. There might possibly be more references in other chapters, but I have not read them all yet.

    Overall I greatly appreciate the work that's been done here and am happy to use it frequently.

    Best
    Christoph
