    I want to do a skew analysis on on a pair of lines both having different lengths. The signals go down copper transmission lines (striplines) and the dielectric material has a dielectric constant (Dk) of 3.2.

    Does the copper have anything to do with the skew analysis?

    Or is it just the material with a Dk of 3.2 that I does most of the skewing?

    If the resistance of the copper is low then the propagation speed is affected by the Dk of the material.

    speed=1/sqrt(μ*ε)
