What is the channel capacity for a teleprinter channel with 300Hz bandwidth and SNR of 3dB where
the noise is white thermal noise?
SNRdB = 3 = 10logSNR, SNR = 100.3 = 1.995
C = B*log2(1+SNR)= 474.76 bit/s
How long will it take to transmit a block of data of 4MB on a distance of 10000km if average speed of
the signal is 0.8c
(speed of light c=3 * 108 m/s) and data rate is 500 bit/s.
The dalay in sending a signal over distance d=10000km with a speed of v=0.8c=2.4*108 m/s is
Equal to td = d/v = 1/24 s,
Time to transmit 4MB data at a rate of 500bit/s tt = 4*106/500=8000 s
Total time t = tt + td = 8000.04 s
Calculate the height of a radio antenna which could cover line of sight transmission in a circle of
100km diameter around it
Radius of the circle around the mast R = 0.5 d = 50km = 3.57 √(4/3 * h)
h = 3/4 (R/3.57) = 147.11 m
1GHz transmission with a signal power at the receiver of 0.1W experiences thermal noise of
temperature T=800K. What is the theoretical channel capacity?
Noise power at T=800K equals N = kTB = 1.38 * 10-23 J/K * 800 K * 109 1/s = 11.04 * 10 -12 W
Channel capacity C = B*log2(1+P/N) = 33 * 109
What are the wave lengths of signals at frequencies of 60Hz and 1.8GHz?

Calculate the mean value of a sinusoidal signal which passed through a detector/rectifier and at its
output can be expressed as a function of time f(t)=∣Asin(2πt/T)∣.
Mean value of the signal is equal to
fmean = 1/T * 0 ∫T ∣Asin(2πt/T)∣dt =
2A/T *
∫T/2 sin (2πt/T)dt = A/π(1 – cosπ) = 2A/π
A microwave transmitter has an output of 0.1W at 2GHz. Signal is transmitted by a parabolic antenna
of 1.2m diameter over free space to a receiver which has a parabolic antenna with the same parameters.
The distance between the stations is d=24km. Find the available signal power out from the receiving
λ= c/f = 15cm, effective area of the antenna Ae=0.56A=0.56πR2
Gain of each antenna can be expressed as G = 4πAe /λ2 = 353.73 = 25.49dB
Loss over d=24km free space can be expressed as L = 10log(4πd/λ) 2 = 126dB
Total loss is equal to L - 2*G =75dB which corresponds to the output power of the second
antenna of P2 = 3.16 nW
A digital system is required to operate at 9600bps. What would be the required channel
bandwidth if each signal element encodes a 4bit word? What would be the answer in the case
of 8bit words?
Nyquist formula for channel capacity reads C=2Blog2M where B is the required bandwidth
and M denotes number of signal elements.
For 4bit words M=24=16 hence 9600=8B and B=1200Hz
For 8bit words M=28=256 hence 9600=16B and B=600Hz
