Find the Fourier spectrum of the following equation
Homework Equations
##F(\omega)=\pi[\delta(\omega - \omega _0)+\delta(\omega +\omega_0)]##
The Attempt at a Solution
Would the Fourier spectrum just be two spikes at ##+\omega _0## and ##-\omega _0## which go up to infinity?

This might seem like a stupid question but I'm unsure what z= ƒ(x/y) means? I'm not sure how I would find ∂z/∂x , ∂z/∂y just from this statement either.
Thank you
