    What is the skin depth?

    What is skin depth?
    Why it is neglected at high frequency (in the rande of GHz)?

    skin depth?

    skin depth is the depth an electromagnetic wave peneterates a non ideal metal. for higher frequency skin depth becomes very small

    Re: skin depth?

    due to boundary conditions, current at high frequency tends to flow closer to the surface of the conductor, so , the actual thickness that the current flow through not the whole thickness but a smaller portion of it depending on the frequency
