QUESTION: 1

### The DSB-SC signal recevied at the output of a channel is given as S(t) = 2 cos2π(103 - 0.5). cos2π(106 - 1). Determine the group delay and phase delay introduced by the channel.

Solution:

For an amplitude modulated signal
the delay in carrier frequency
component gives phase delay and
delay in baseband (message)
signal gives the group delay.
