AM waveform in frequency domain

  1. Apr 26, 2012 #1
    Hello, I need to sketch the frequency domain for the following AM waveform showing total bandwidth and frequency.
    8sin(2pi500kt - 4cos(2pi530kt) + 4cos(2pi(470kt)

    I have attached an attempt I have made.
    Does anyone know if I have this correct or not ?

    Thanks kindly for any input.

    What does that "k" mean in cos(2pi530kt)?

    sorry I dont know what that is referring to. We were not told.

    Do you think I have the frequency domain sketch correct based on what we do know?

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, I can't give an authoritative answer. But I'm wondering whether you might be meant to label the frequencies as 500k, 503k, etc., that k seems to be some scaling factor. Are you sure it's not meant to be x103 and you have changed it to a k?

    Also, perhaps someone else can confirm that the vertical axis is okay as the peak value. I'm just wondering whether it should be RMS. Can you refer back to an example in your notes to confirm that peak voltage is what you need to use here? (I've forgotten.) https://www.physicsforums.com/images/icons/icon9.gif [Broken]
