Frequency and Voltage relation

  1. Jan 21, 2012 #1
    Hi, I'm confused about the meaning of the term frequency used in electronics. I'm not sure if I understand what it means.

    For example:

    There a number of frequencies travel through a single cable television, at the end point does the de-multiplexer recognizes each signal by its voltages?

    E.g. Signal1 at some frequency producing different voltage depending on frequency.

    Another example is radio waves received by radio antenna, does each EM wave produce different voltage?

    I would like know the relation between frequency and voltage, so i can understand what frequency means in electronics.

    No they are independent. The way they separate different frequencies in radio for instance is using a tuned circuit like a narrow band filter. Tuning that to different frequencies separates out each one.
