Prev: frequency modulationNext: Frequency of mixer From: bos1234 on 17 Jun 2010 03:44 when freq.spectrum is plotted for FM signals such as the pic below, how would I go about calculating the power? Is it sum of |X(f)|^2 (i.e. square each individual compnent and add) The solution has the solution squares each indivial compnents adds it then halves (i.e. 1/2 . A_c^2). Why did they do this?

Sum of |X(f)|^2 will give you 2*((A/2)^2) = (A^2)/2. In your picture only the positive side of the spectrum is plotted. I guess this is where the 1/2 coefficient comes from.
