How to compute phase of the signal?

  1. May 10, 2015 #1
    Suppose you are given a phase
    spectrum or (/and) equation of the (main) signal only and you are said that the given (main) signal is
    formed of 3 other signals.
    Is it possible to compute phases of these three signals from the
    equation or (/ and) phase
    spectrum of the (main) signal?
    Also,what information is containedin the phases of these signals?

    Note : You can take any equation
    of your choice.but just not take
    equation of sum of 3 signal
    functions. at least mix 2 signal
    functions together

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I'm not sure what you are asking - are the 3 signals of known functional form? If not, then this cannot be done uniquely.

    By the way, the last part of your post makes this sound like a homework question. Is it?
