Frequency and impulse response

  1. Nov 6, 2014 #1
    Hi, I have a discrete system with input x(t) and output y(t).

    Using the formula frequency response H(f) = y(f)/x(f) in the Fourier domain.

    Does this mean to find the frequency response I have to take the Fourier Transform of

    y(t) to get y(f) and divide it by the Fourier transform of x(t) , x(f) ?

    also, for the impulse response: input convolved with impulse response = output.

    How do I go about calculating the impulse response given I know the input, output and frequency response.

    Just looking for some clarification and guidance before I dive into this assignment.

    Think I got it...I can go from the freq response to impulse response by taking the inverse fourier transform of the freq response.
