 English translation:as the radius decreases, the wave is transformed more quickly Explanation:This definitely builds on previous answers for the basic words, but I translated the structure ab initio (honest guv)! With decreasing frequency, as the radius R decreases, the propagating wave is transformed more quickly into a plane/planar wave.

 It was so hard to make a decision... I don't know why but David's version makes me most happy. Yet, I've generated my own translation: as the frequency decreases, the propagating wave transforms into a plane wave, and the smaller the cavity radius R, the faster this transformation. If you see that smth.'s wrong with my creature, let me know please Thanks to all Yours Dmitrii 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

Oops...
Наоборот: The less the radius is, the faster...

As the frequency decreases, the less radius R is, the more rapidly is the propagating wave transformed into a planar wave.

Explanation:
with decrease of frequency, the propagating wave is transformed into a plane wave more rapidly, the smaller the radius R.

Contrary to my friend\'s Jack D.\'s \"planar wave\" (103,00 hits on Goggle) I prefer plane wave (799,00 hits). But then, the British never did learn to speak English! LOL!!

Explanation:
When the frequency is decreasing, (then) the smaller the radius the faster the propagating wave transforms into a plane-wave.

I think the radius should be smaller, not less, and the wave is plane, not planar.
