Resolution in "degrees"? 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the following scheme we see the channels spreadout of an absolute coder with 5 bits that works on a regular binary code. What's his resolution in degrees? http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/475/01234v.jpg [Broken] 3. The attempt at a solution I don't ever recall measuring resolution in degrees. However, I see the solution in the solution manual is just this: 360/25 = 11.25 degrees / bit My question is simple...where did he take the 25 from? I see the numbers range from 0 till 31... excuse the bad quality.
