(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

(a) The negative half-cycles of a sinusoidal waveform E(t) = E0*cos(omega*t) are removed by a half-

wave rectifier. Find the Fourier series representing the resulting wave in the output.

(b) Find the output produced by a full-wave rectifier, which inverts the negative half-cycles.

2. Relevant equations

Honestly, I am taking a graduate optics class, but wasn't exposed much to Fourier Series as an undergrad. My textbook gives the general equation for a fourier series and how to compute the coefficients, but I'm not sure how to use them because there are no examples.

3. The attempt at a solution

Do I solve for the coefficients A and B first by plugging in my equation for E(t) in for f(x)?
