Let’s redo the calculation of conductor attenuation using the Wheeler incremental inductance formula.

Wheeler’s formula:

The formula is applied for each conductor and the conductor attenuation from each of the two conductors is then added.

In this formula, dl (for a given conductor) is the distance by which the conducting boundary is receded away from the field region.

We can also calculate the fundamental per-unit-length parameters of the coaxial line.

We choose (somewhat arbitrarily) the cosine function for the angle variation.

The cosine choice corresponds to having the transverse electric field E being an even function of, which is the field that would be excited by a probe located at  = 0.

For a given choice of n and a given value of b/a, we can solve the above equation for x to find the zeros.

A graph of the determinant reveals the zeros of the determinant.

Note: These values are not the same as those of the circular waveguide, although the same notation for the zeros is being used.
