I need answer to thses qustions.​

1- Could you please explain the notion of electrical length.​

2- If I give you a physical length of an element and the operating frequency, how to be able to calculate the elements electrical length.

It's hard to tell from your questions, but it sounds like you're talking resonant lengths of wire for antennas. You're going to have to be a bit clearer phrasing your question.

This sounds like a school assignment too, which probably means it needs to be in the homework forum.

I agree with Bill. This does appear to be a homework assignment and so I have moved this thread to the homework forum.

Let me know a212 if we have misjudged you post as homework.

Electrical length is related to the wavelength of a signal propagating in a trasnmission line. It is also related to the properties of the materials and the geometry of the construction. Since wavelength times frequency is a constant we can see that electrical length changes as the frequency of the signal changes.

You can calculate the electrical length in the said applications by:

$L_{electrical}$ = $3.1e-4\frac{L_{physical}*f}{V_{P}}$ (in metres)

$V_{P}$ is the velcoity factor is the wave velocity divided by the speed of light in a vacuum (obviously a value less than 1).
