Comparing equations 12 and 13 with the corresponding terms in Fig. 5 A, it can be seen that the transmitted and reflected current waves for a shunt conductance g bear the same relation to each other as do the transmitted and reflected voltage waves for a series ... The locus of the peaks of these discontinuities forms an exponential curve whose time constant is 2C/g. ... .5 x 10-lk g * 7. 6k x lOaquot;6 1.18 x 10aquot;8 sec. = 0.0118 microsecond (18) Auxiliary scales have been added to Figs.
