Two fundamental waveguide constants, the characteristic impedance and the propagation constant, will next be discussed in terms of traveling voltage and current waves, as well as in terms of primary circuit elements. The relationship of these two waveguide constants to the normalized input impedance characteristics of a waveguide will be shown. This relationship is the basis for the coordinate arrangement of the SMITH CHART. Following this, the use of the SMITH CHART coordinates in converting from normalized impedances to normalized admittances will be described.
