Homework Help: Rotary encoders

  1. Jan 20, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I am a student and am about to start my first year mechatronics shortly..i have been asked to research a few things on rotary encoders (incremental) and was wondering if one could help me understand how to calculate the smallest possible angle that can be measured by a rotary encoder of a rotary inverted pendulum based on the resolution of the encoder

    2. Relevant equations
    this is what i'd like to know



    3. The attempt at a solution
    none
