Exponential Fourier Series for Pulse Train

  1. Apr 27, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need help finding the exponential Fourier series for the pulse train below.


    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]p_T(t)=\sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty}{D_n e^{j2nt}[/tex]


    3. The attempt at a solution


    I know that D0=0.2. However, I cannot evaluate my final answer for n=0 because I have n in the denominator. Where am I going wrong?

    The first line in your attempted solution has an error: you need to either include x(t) inside the integral, or change the limits of integration.

    I forgot to label on the graph that the magnitude of pt(t) is 1. Why can't I integrate from 0 to 0.4x10^-3 and multiply by 2 since there is even symmetry?
