in which vQ is the free-space velocity of electromagnetic waves, D and L are the internal diameter and length respectively of the cylinder, r is a constant for a particular mode of resonance, n is the number of half-wave-lengths in the resonator and Q is the quality factor. Assuming the validity of this equation the value of v0 can be obtained from measured values o f /, £>, L and Q. A copper cylinder of diameter approximately 7*4 cm. and length 8*5 cm. was constructed with the greatest… CONTINUE READING
