Homework Help: Find Signal to noise ratio (SNR)

  1. Jul 18, 2011 #1
    has a transfer characteristic |H(f) given in the link below. The transmission is at maximum error-free rate of 4,800 bps. Compute the SNR (signal-to-noise-ratio) at the channel output. Does the output signal suffer from any distortion?


    First.. from the figure given, i know bandwidth, B = 3kHz..
    next, R is given..

    from channel capacity theorem or Shannon theorem, when the probability of error would approach zero if R < C
    however, i can't find Channel capacity, C because there is not enough information..

    how am i going to solve this question?
