How much do you know about physics? This quiz is about various aspects of the propagation of electromagnetic waves and underlying technical principles.

Test your knowledge and have a chance to receive one of the three great prizes:

  1. WR-ToolRF Torque Wrench for SMA & RPSMA Plugs to handle coach connectors properly.
  2. Design Kit WR-SMA Cable Connectors with different coax connectors to test and use.
  3. WR-ToolRF Crimping Tool for RF Cable Connector.

Best thing is: You do not have to score the highest number to get one of the three prizes! Just take part in the quiz until the 15th of July 2023 and you might be the one who gets the prize. The selected participants will be informed on Monday, 17th of July via email.

The quiz was prepared by Distrelec and Würth Elektronik, and the data collected through respondents will be only used to select the participants of the quiz for the prize.

*For some hints in order to answer the questions, read our AppNote or check out the Würth Elektronik eiSos portfolio of RF coax connectors.

Great Minds from the past – Great Minds today. Volume Three: Heinrich Hertz

Heinrich Rudolf Hertz was a German physicist who was born 1857 in Hamburg and died early in 1894 in Bonn. In 1886, he was the first to generate and detect electromagnetic waves in experiments and is thus considered to be their discoverer. In his honor, the international unit for frequency was named Hertz (abbreviated with the unit symbol Hz).

Hertz came from a distinguished Hanseatic family. His father Gustav Ferdinand Hertz (1827-1914) held a doctorate in law, was a judge from 1877, and was senator and president of the Hamburg judicial administration from 1887 to 1904.

Hertz studied mathematics and physics at Technical University Munich. At the age of 23, Hertz earned his doctorate with a thesis on the rotation of metal spheres in a magnetic field at Friedrich-Wilhelms-University in Berlin and remained for two years as a research and lecture assistant to Hermann von Helmholtz, where he began to investigate the physical nature of cathode rays.

In 1886, Hertz was the first to succeed in experimentally generating and detecting free electromagnetic waves. On November 13, 1886, he succeeded in experimentally generating electromagnetic waves and transmitting them from a transmitter to a receiver.
