Calculating the propagation delay of coaxial cable

5 meter RG-174/U

  • Velocity of propagation = 66%
  • Speed of light in vacuum = 299.792.458 m/s
  • 100% = 299792458 m/s
  • 66% = 197863022 m/s
  • 197863022 m in 1 sec
  • 1m in 0,000000005054 sec
  • 1m in 5,05400 nanoseconds
  • 5m = 25,27 nanoseconds
