ive been trying to proof the modulation index for Am transmission, it goes like this(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Vmax = a(1+u)

Vmin = a(1-u)

it basicilly describes the amount of infromation in the total power transmitted and should allways be between 0 & 1

eventually the answer should come out to be

u = (Vmax-Vmin)/(Vmax+Vmin)

its the maths in between that is anoying the hell out of me, if any body has any info on doing this please help, ive tried matrices so dont bother !!

thanks in advance.
