DFT problem

  1. Feb 28, 2012 #1
    I have a f(n*t) vs t data areay how to find out its (DFT) fourier transform in c. I find every time that every program needs its real and imaginarry part. but i have only magnitude. please help me out to find DFT of these data .

    If your data is all real then why not put the imaginary values as zero?

    after sampling I have value of t & X(t) like
    375.020000 -0.754661
    375.030000 -0.755227
    375.040000 -0.755841
    375.050000 -0.756501
    375.060000 -0.757207
    375.070000 -0.757960
    375.080000 -0.758759
    375.090000 -0.759604
    375.100000 -0.760494
    375.110000 -0.761431
    375.120000 -0.762414
    375.130000 -0.763442
    375.140000 -0.764515
    375.150000 -0.765633
    375.160000 -0.766797
    375.170000 -0.768005
    375.180000 -0.769258
    I would like to find DFT and I need omega/freq and X(W) value
    please help me Thank you

    How much do you know about discrete Fourier transforms? What are you trying to find out from the data?

    Thank you for reply. I want to find out a frequency Vs Amplitude graph

    I want to find out time vs Amplitude to frequency vs Amplitude of a signal

    And what does DFT do? (I want you to work a bit for this. ;-) )

    I have a collage project and I have a system out put I must make a program to find out system's frequency response of numerically.

    You didn't say what the DFT does. You have asked a question that suggests you have no idea. I could tell you anything and you would believe me. You need to understand about the process.
    If you want an answer then put some data in for a familiar waveform for which you know the frequency spectrum. Try some sine waves with different periods.
