 P: 62 Come on, I thought you would have spotted that one. I switched frequency for wavelength. Couldn't resist. :) E = hc/λ E = Energy in Joules h = Planck's constant c = speed of light λ = wavelength λ 1Hz = 299,790,000m λ 2Hz = 149,900,000m λ 10Hz = 29,979,000m E = ((6.626068 * 10e-34) * (299792458)) / wavelength E = 1.986445212595144e-25 / wavelength E 1Hz = 6.6261223276131425331065078888555e-34 E 2Hz = 1.3251802619046991327551701134089e-33 E 10Hz = 6.6261223276131425331065078888555e-33 number of photons per second = 1 Watt (or 1 J/s) / energy of a photon (J) 1Hz = 1.5091782954755973367955496869703e+33 2Hz = 7.54614318328803631827789112635e+32 10Hz = 1.5091782954755973367955496869703e+32 The total theoretical capacity for a binary 1W signal, over 1 second, is: 1Hz = 1.5091782954755973367955496869703e+33 bits 2Hz = 7.54614318328803631827789112635e+32 bits 10Hz = 1.5091782954755973367955496869703e+32 bits With 10e29 different photons between Hertz, a 1Hz bandwidth signal of 1 W with a base frequency of 1Hz has the following minimum capacity: 7.54614318328803631827789112635e+32 * 10e29 = 7.54614318328803631827789112635e+61 bits As we increase the frequency theoretical capacity drops. This is the point you wanted me to resolve earlier, there is nothing to resolve. The 'capacity' you are referring to is based upon modulation of an ever increasing frequency, which is a classical view point that really does not make sense at the quantum level.
