QUESTION: 1

### A carrier is simultaneously modulated by two sine waves with modulation indices of 0.4 and 0.3. The resultant modulation index will be

Solution: QUESTION: 2

### In a DSB-SC system with 100% modulation, the power saving is

Solution:

In previous solution Pc = 2/3P. If carrier is suppressed then 2/3 P or 66% power will be saved.

QUESTION: 3

### A 10 kW carrier is sinusoidally modulated by two carriers corresponding to a modulation index of 30% and 40% respectively. The total radiated power(is

Solution: = 11.25 kW

QUESTION: 4

In amplitude modulation, the modulation envelope has a peak value which is double the unmodulated carrier value. What is the value of the modulation index ?

Solution:  Thus α = 1, therefor modulation index is 1 or 100% modulation.

QUESTION: 5

If the modulation index of an AM wave is changed from 0 to 1, the transmitted power

Solution: QUESTION: 6

A diode detector has a load of 1 kΩ shunted by a 10000 pF capacitor. The diode has a forward resistance of 1 Ω. The maximum permissible depth of modulation,so as to avoid diagonal clipping, with modulating signal frequency fo 10 kHz will be

Solution:  QUESTION: 7

An AM signal is detected using an envelop detector.The carrier frequency and modulating signal frequency are 1 MHz and 2 kHz respectively. An appropriate value for the time constant of the envelope detector is.

A 1 MHz sinusoidal carrier is amplitude modulated by a symmetrical square wave of period 100 μ sec. Which of the following frequencies will NOT be present in the modulated signal?

Solution: Expressing square wave as modulating signal m(t) QUESTION: 9

For an AM signal, the bandwidth is 10 kHz and the highest frequency component present is 705 kHz. The carrier frequency used for this AM signal is

Solution:  QUESTION: 10

A message signal m(t) = sinct + sinc2(t)  modulates the carrier signal (t) = Acos2πfct . The bandwidth of the modulated signal is

Solution:  QUESTION: 11

Consider the system shown in figure . The average value of m(t) is zero and maximum value of
|m(t)| is M. The square-law device is defined by y(t) = 4x(t) +10 x(t). Que: The value of M, required to produce modulation index of 0.8, is

Solution:  QUESTION: 12

Consider the system shown in figure . The average value of m(t) is zero and maximum value of
|m(t)| is M. The square-law device is defined by y(t) = 4x(t) +10 x(t). Let W be the bandwidth of message signal m(t). AM signal would be recovered if

Solution: QUESTION: 13

A super heterodyne receiver is designed to receive transmitted signals between 5 and 10 MHz. High-side tuning is to be used. The tuning range of the local oscillator for IF frequency 500 kHz would be

Solution:

Since High-side tuning is used QUESTION: 14

A super heterodyne receiver uses an IF frequency of 455 kHz. The receiver is tuned to a transmitter having a carrier frequency of 2400 kHz. High-side tuning is to be used. The image frequency will be

Solution: QUESTION: 15

In the circuit shown in fig, the transformers are center tapped and the diodes are connected as shown in a bridge. Between the terminals 1 and 2 an a.c. voltage source of frequency 400 Hz is connected. Another a.c. voltage of 1.0 MHz is connected between 3 and 4. The output between 5 and 6 contains components at Solution:

The given circuit is a ring modulator. The output is DSB-SC signal. So it will contain m(t) cos( nwct) where n = 1,2, 3...... Therefore there will be only (1 MHz +- 400 Hz) frequency component.

QUESTION: 16

A superheterodyne receiver is to operate in the frequency range 550 kHz-1650 kHz, with the intermediate frequency of 450 kHz. Let R = cmax / cmin   denote the required capacitance ratio of the local oscillator and I denote the image frequency (in kHz) of the incoming signal. If the receiver is tuned to 700 kHz, then

Solution:

fmax = 1650 + 450 = 2100 kHz

fmin = 550 + 450 = 1000 kHz. QUESTION: 17

Consider a system shown in Figure . Let X( f ) and Y( f ) denote the Fourier transforms of x(t) and y(t) respectively. The ideal HPF has the cutoff frequency 10 kHz. The positive frequencies where Y( f ) has spectral peaks are Solution:

Since X (f) has spectral peak at 1 kHz so at the output of first modulator spectral peak will be at (10 + 1) kHz and (10  1) kHz. After passing the HPF frequency component of 11 kHz will remain. The output of 2nd modulator will be (13 +11) kHz. So Y (f) has spectral peak at 2 kHz and 24 kHz.

QUESTION: 18

In fig. The output y(t) will be

Solution:

m(t).s(t) = y1(t)  QUESTION: 19

What is the carrier frequency in an AM wave when its highest frequency component is 850Hz and the bandwidth of the signal is 50Hz?

Solution:

Upper frequency = 850Hz
Bandwidth = 50Hz
Therefore lower Frequency = 850 - 50= 800 Hz
Carrier Frequency = (850-800)/2
= 825 Hz
