**1. Homework Statement**

An A/D converter is to operate with a full-scale voltage of 10V. How many bits should be employed to obtain a resolution of 0.01%?

**2. Homework Equations**

Resolution = Full Scale voltage / (2

^{N}- 1)

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

.01% * 10 V = .01/100 * 10 V = .001

.001 = 10 V / (2

^{N}- 1)

N = 13.2879 = 14 bits

I am just learning this stuff, but 14 bits seems high to me. I believe the mistake is in the Resolution. I am just assuming they me the resolution is .01% of the full scale voltage, this seems wrong to me.

Thanks for any help!
